For GCI, green cooling refers to energy efficient technologies using natural refrigerants.
GCI develops sustainable strategies and solutions for the dissemination of green cooling technologies through consulting, research, and cross-sector collaboration.
This network is a voluntary membership arrangement. Facilitation is provided by GCI, a project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. GCI is funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
GCI provides network members with information, advice and collaboration opportunities to enhance their engagement in green cooling issues.
GCI pursues its mission through an open membership policy. It allows companies and organisations to join, which are interested in improving their approach to green cooling.
To commence your membership, a primary contact person must be nominated. He or she needs to sign a GCI membership agreement and send it in to signal the company’s or organisation’s official agreement.
GCI reserves the right to refuse membership, cancel membership status or deny participation at GCI activities should it deem the applying organisation to be inconsistent with its mission.
Network participation is free.
Each member designates one primary contact person to be the “green cooling focal point”. This is generally the person who initiated the membership or who is authorised to make decisions regarding the company’s or organisation's membership. This person receives communication from GCI about maintenance and management of the membership and collaboration opportunities.
