Cooling is central to health and the environment. Efficient, clean cooling for all underpins many Sustainable Development Goals and represents an opportunity to avoid substantial climate and air pollutant emissions.
The phase-down of HFC refrigerants under the Kigali amendment has the potential to avoid up to 0.1˚C of warming by 2050 and up to 0.4℃ by 2100. The economic, environmental, and health benefits of catalyzing simultaneous energy efficiency improvements, in concert with the HFC phase-down, supports reduced energy consumption and avoided emissions of CO2 and black carbon, which can potentially double the climate benefit of the phase down alone.
Enhancement of energy efficiency in the cooling sector is a strategic, near-term opportunity to realize significant climate and clean air benefits.
In this event, our distinguished panel will showcase the concrete actions of countries and other actors to catalyze ambitious measures to improve energy efficiency in the cooling sector while transitioning out of HCFC and HFC refrigerants.
