Brussels, Bogotá, 23 June 2021. Eurovent and the Federation of Ibero-American Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Associations (FAIAR) signed a Memorandum of Understanding, underlining their commitment to greater harmonisation and stronger ties between Europe and Latin America.

In the framework of the Memorandum, the two organisations will collaborate on standards development, codes of good practice and networking events, among others. Eurovent and FAIAR will have their first high-level coordination meeting still this year to identify concrete opportunities for joint action.

Raul Corredera Haener, President of Eurovent: “In order to raise and harmonise industry standards worldwide, Eurovent ambitions to strengthen its international partnerships with like-minded associations. FAIAR has proven to be such a partner and we look forward to working together with our colleagues from Latin America much more closely in the future to bring new opportunities to our industry.”

Odete de Almeida, President of FAIAR: “To achieve FAIAR objectives, we understand the importance of integration of related associations of any territorial scope, in order to provide mutual collaboration and exchange experiences in the professional field, which benefit the partners.”

Eurovent and FAIAR agreed to work together to promote energy efficient, environmentally friendly, safe and reliable HVACR technologies based on common principles. The HVACR sector has an important role to play in the welfare of society and in the fight against climate change. The two regional associations aim to avoid disjointed regional approaches to these questions, which would turn opportunities for growth and innovation into market barriers.
