Cooling is one of the critical intervention areas, both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, that can help serve short-term emergency needs and support long-term economic recovery, while contributing to sustainable development and building greater resilience to future shocks. By actively incorporating efficient, climate-friendly cooling across sectors in their stimulus packages, countries can increase their ability to weather the pandemic storms, but deliver on the Paris Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Kigali Amendment.
This brief, developed jointly by the CCAC Efficient Cooling Initiative and the Cool Coalition, presents how – in multiple critical economic sectors or systems (buildings, appliances, urban environments, cold chains, and R&D) – national governments can reorient public policy and include cooling in their recovery packages.
