The demand for cooling technologies is growing: Refrigerators and air conditioners, but also larger chillers for office buildings, supermarkets or industrial cooling are needed everywhere. At the same time, these industries are already responsible for a large share of global greenhouse gas emissions and it is expected that emissions in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors will continue to grow disproportionately. Business as usual is not an option if goals regarding climate change are supposed to be reached. Green cooling technologies permit the growth of the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
