A key initiative in Europe’s strategy to fight climate change is being undermined by an escalating trade in climate-harming refrigerant gases. These alarming findings are featured in our new report Doors Wide Open: Europe’s flourishing illegal trade in hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), released today.
Together with Greenpeace, we relaunch our updated Cool Technologies database. Cool Technologies is an easy-to-use, routinely updated, searchable database of sustainable cooling and refrigeration systems from around the world created to help users, manufacturers and policy-makers move away from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)
The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) has released a new Resolution on Refrigeration that demonstrates commitment of 400 companies to swiftly phase down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). This is a very positive announcment and gives Montreal Protocol negotiators confidence that the global business community supports HFC phase down.
