'It is crucial for me that our members will see an increased event activity in the future which means more courses, conferences and workshops. There are two other issues which I find extremely interesting: "our young members" and "the international aspect". The young people are those who will run our country in the future and thus they must be well-prepared technically, so that they can contribute to creating growth in the Danish companies. The task, therefore, is to have the established people in the HVAC industry involve the young people at an early stage. The international aspect is also interesting as Denmark may be a small country, but it is also a unique country. Denmark is a market leader in many segments of the HVAC industry and we are able to implement new technologies relatively fast. Moreover, we are at the forefront of green energy, indoor climate and energy optimization. We must make the world see this and use it to make our industry grow' says Claus Andreasson.
