Cool Up: Upscaling Sustainable Cooling


Sustainable cooling has enormous potential to reduce the impacts that increased cooling demand has on the ozone layer, climate, and environment, and at the same time, help cut costs and adapt to rising temperatures. But how can we accelerate the uptake of sustainable cooling technologies and natural refrigerants to realise these benefits? This event will introduce you to the Cool Up programme's approach to accelerating the shift to sustainable cooling and implementation of international ozone and climate commitments. You will also hear from partner country governments, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, about why they are motivated to support the transition to sustainable cooling.
