Why is HVAC&R important?
HVAC&R underpins modern societies and contributes enormously to economic productivity. Without it, many industries, workplaces, residences, healthcare facilities and schools – places where modern age people live out their modern age lives – would simply not be possible.

What do you do, and what is the most satisfying aspect of your work?
My core role is to manage the Woolworths refrigeration specification. However, it’s refrigeration innovation – such as developing HFC-free HVAC&R solutions – that keeps me on my toes.

What will you be doing to celebrate World Refrigeration Day?
I will be buying an ice-cream. 😁😁

As for Woolworths, we have been on the front foot for the inaugural 2019 World Refrigeration Day. We have collaborated with a number of industry representative bodies to raise the profile of the HVAC&R industry with a specific audience in mind – members of our community who are contemplating their vocational options but may not be familiar with the exciting opportunities a career in HVAC&R can offer. We will be throwing open the plant room doors of supermarkets in Melbourne and Sydney to showcase some leading-edge refrigeration technology and its contribution towards a zero-emissions supermarket future.
