Looking to the future

Our vision

AIRAH has completed a Strategic Plan to guide the Institute through 2023–2027.

As Australia’s professional association for the HVAC&R Industry, we strive to create an Australian HVAC&R industry that is highly skilled and professional, safe, sustainable, and environmentally effective.

AIRAH's Strategic Plan 2023–2027

Over the past five years, AIRAH has embarked on a concerted program of initiatives to create a sound platform of organisational capability from which to thrive and grow. A strong financial focus, sound systems and processes, business practice compliance, and growing people capability have all become an integral part of the way we do business. AIRAH’s ability to adapt in response to the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020–22 is a testament to the resilience and sustainability of the organisation.

Looking towards 2030, there are a number of key challenges facing the industry. These include the transition to net zero buildings, the digitisation of the built environment, and a need to make our sector more accessible and inclusive.

AIRAH has the opportunity to play a leading role to enable this step-change across the industry. The Institute has an ambitious goal to be the leading professional association for the HVAC&R and building services sector by 2030. By leveraging its intellectual property, training, and communication channels, together with the extensive knowledge base of its members and networks, AIRAH is well positioned to shape the future of the Australian HVAC&R industry.
