ACREX India 2014: Heading towards carbon neutral

- Growing construction sector offers new business perspectives

South Asia’s largest exhibition on Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Building Services: Acrex India 2014 will take place at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from February 27 to March 1, 2014. More than 450 companies from Asia, Europe and North America will participate in the exhibition. As a first of its kind, ACREX India has started an initiative that aims at reducing its carbon footprint to set an example for environment-friendly and energy-efficient development in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC & R) sector. ACREX India 2014 is organized by the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) and NürnbergMesse India.
The Indian construction industry progressed at a Compound Annual Growth rate (CAGR) of 15.10 percent between 2008 and 2012. This growth was supported by the country’s expanding economy, increased government spending on public infrastructure, high urbanization and a supportive foreign direct investment (FDI) system. For the next five years, the construction industry’s growth is expected to remain strong as a result of the government’s commitment to improve India’s infrastructure. “The positive development of the construction and infrastructure sector offers numerous business opportunities for the HVAC & R industry,” says Sonia Prashar, Managing Director of NürnbergMesse India. “With ACREX India we offer the global industry a platform to expand their business and to benefit from these positive developments.”
Mr. Ashish Rakheja, Chairman ACREX India 2014 shared his vision for the show, apart from many of his “WOW” ideas of aiming to have ACREX India 2014 as carbon neutral, acknowledging the latest industry innovations this year’s ACREX India 2014 would also have a special Architects Forum, where architects would display their models of the future building concepts.
Towards a carbon neutral exhibition
The exhibition focuses on energy-efficient technologies and latest innovations. As representative of a future-oriented industry, ISHRAE has decided to set an example for responsible use of natural resources: To compensate unavoidable emissions caused due to the exhibition, the organization is going to plant 10,000 trees all over India. In fact the launch of ACREX India 2014 saw more than 200 attendees planting the trees virtually through an NGO named Sankalp Taru. The NGO would plant these trees on behalf of delegates, Exhibitors & Visitors of ACREX India 2014 and ISHRAE Members. These trees can be located through GPRS system and their growth can be also monitored from time to time. Another step which ISHRAE would be exploring is reusing and recycling of the waste which would be generated during ACREX India 2014. Every exhibitor is invited to contribute to the reduction of the exhibition’s carbon footprint by following the principle of three “Rs”: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse.
