This product list has been designed to support the netzero cooling transition and demonstrate the feasibility of urgent action. The product list provides a selection of products across all major cooling sectors, with a unique focus on ultra-low Global Warming Potential (GWP) natural refrigerants alongside appliance energy efficiency to help businesses, governments and consumers around the globe make sustainable cooling choices.
Timely updates to outdated safety standards and building codes are essential to enable a safe transition from climate-warming hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to climate-friendly refrigerants. With global stock of household air-conditioners (ACs) expected to triple by 2050, continued use of HFCs in ACs is fueling the climate crisis.
he F-Gas Regulation is a landmark piece of European Union (EU) climate legislation for transitioning away from fluorinated gases such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6). After five years in force, the legislation is now being reviewed for improvement. This NGO stakeholder briefing in response to the public consultation identifies several areas where the F-Gas Regulation requires revision to improve implementation, increase climate ambition as set out in the European Green Deal (EGD), and contribute significantly to the EU climate neutrality target.
