Providing climate-friendly (based on natural refrigerants) and energy-efficient cooling solutions is a key to protecting the climate and catering to people’s vital needs around the world. It’s what makes Green Cooling so important – and where the GIZ program comes into play.

To this end, the programme offers financial and technical support for companies that want to do business or have already begun operating in developing and emerging economies.
