Green Cooling Initiative II

Objective and activities

The project contributes to raising international awareness of the significant mitigation potential associated with environmentally- and climate-friendly cooling technologies by supporting partner countries in measures to transform their RAC sector. Thereby, the project aims to embed the RAC sector into the global climate and ozone discussion (UNFCCC, CTCN, TEC, CCAC and MP). The expansion of global and regional networks with representatives from politics, industry, and science will encourage the dissemination of climate-friendly cooling technologies. Targeted policy advice based on technology roadmaps will support partner countries in the implementation of cooling technology standards, whilst capacity building will allow them to manage their technology transformations. Voluntary private sector contributions will increase transformational readiness and will generate public-private partnerships. Proposals to financing institutions can provide replicable funding models and instruments.
