Submit Your Best Climate-Friendly Cooling Products for New COP26 Report
The “Pathway to Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Cooling” report will include a
global HVAC&R product list featuring technologies that use natural (or no)
refrigerants.

Brussels, Belgium (July 2, 2020) – A new and exciting project examining the pathway
to zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the global cooling sector has been
launched as a collaboration between the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP),
the Cool Coalition, the Carbon Trust and the COP26 High-Level Champions.*
As part of this project, a “Pathway to Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Cooling”
report will be written, which includes a global product list featuring HVAC&R
technologies that use natural (or no) refrigerants. As such, the Environmental
Investigation Agency (EIA) and shecco are reaching out to manufacturers around the
world to submit their best products in various HVAC&R sub-sectors.

The list will be shared with major end users with the aim of encouraging non-state
actors to invest in these technologies. It will also be used to identify sub-sectors
where more development is required in order to meet the Pathway to Zero
requirements for cooling in the future.

Products will be collected under eight main sectors: domestic, commercial,
industrial, and transport refrigeration; and domestic, commercial, industrial, and
mobile air conditioning. In sectors where there is an abundance of qualifying
products, the information will be presented as a prescriptive guideline for end users
instead of a set product list.

Companies will be allowed to submit multiple products if they so choose – at no
cost. The minimum criterion for submission is that the product should use either no
refrigerants or natural refrigerants (i.e. non-synthetic refrigerants). Preference will
be given to products with proven energy efficiency features (such as suitable energy
labels and high coefficient of performance/COP ratings) – if available/applicable.

*This project supports the work of the United Nations Framework Convention on
Climate Change (UNFCCC) Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action and in
particular the Climate Action Pathways which outline the longer-term vision for a
1.5°C climate-resilient world from the perspective of non-party stakeholders and
sets out actions needed to achieve that future.
