Suggit’s theme for the tenure is “Making a difference by driving a change”. By way of summarising the core issues that shall deserve attention during his term to bring a renewed momentum to the Middle East’s HVACR sector, Suggit enumerated the following:
1) Energy efficiency through choice of product and technology
2) Indoor Air Quality through enforcement of ISO 16890 and maintenance standards
3) Retrofitting to enhance building efficiencies and personal wellbeing
4) Improving cold chain security and efficiency

Suggitt highlighted issues that deserve change across relevant product areas, including fans and motors, cooling systems, air curtains and air-handling units. Speaking of fans and motors, he said: “Belt-driven fans and FEG fan measurements should be a thing of the past once and for all. IE3 should be the minimum requirement for all motors.”

Speaking of cooling systems, he said: “We should continue to drive fraudulent products out of the market. Seasonal efficiency calculations should finally be introduced in legislation, and everyone must work towards utilising the correct gases, taking example of the EU F-Gas Regulation.”
