Green Cooling Initiative III

As of: September 2021

Rising temperatures, growing populations and increasing prosperity are boosting the global demand for cooling. Conventional cooling technologies lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and damage the ozone layer. The project strengthens key actors in public and private sector institutions in the partner countries to make their refrigeration and air conditioning sectors sustainable and to achieve their goals within the framework of multilateral agreements such as the Montreal Protocol. In concrete terms, the project supports the implementation of regionally adapted sustainable sector strategies and effectively introduces the issue of sustainable cooling into the national climate discourse. It also makes financing instruments for Green Cooling technologies more widely available and establishes a training system for refrigeration and air conditioning technicians. Close cooperation with the private sector shall demonstrate feasibility and increase demand for environmentally friendly cooling technologies.
