Eurovent has joined the Cool Coalition, a global initiative led by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
The initiative aims to promote access to efficient, climate-friendly cooling for both industrialised and developing countries.
Eurovent joins the network of more than 100 partners to help achieve better standards and regulations across the globe in support of the Coalition’s objectives.
Coalition members are collaborating on science, policy, finance, and technology to meet growing demands for cooling in the context of rising climate ambition.
It brings together governments, cities, international organisations, businesses, finance, academia, and civil society groups, engaged in knowledge exchange, advocacy, and joint action towards a rapid global transition to efficient and climate-friendly cooling.
UNEP Cool Coalition coordinator, Lily Riahi, said demand for cooling and refrigeration will rise exponentially over coming decades.
“To put the cooling sector on a path to net-zero emissions, we need everyone on board,” she said.
