The demand for cooling is increasing globally. Consequently, emissions from the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector will keep rising as well. The transition to Green Cooling technologies can decrease emissions significantly. However, the first round of NDCs in 2015, it became evident that many countries did not take into account the mitigation potential of the RAC sector. This is currently changing, and more countries are integrating the RAC sector into their NDC.   

In this side event, experts will demonstrate the importance and potential of the RAC sector for more ambitious and enhanced NDCs and they will give an overview of the current status. Country examples will illustrate what the integration can look like in practice.  

We cordially invite you to join us in this session! Please register below to receive the meeting information.
