UN Coalition Unveils Plans To Beat Global Warming

The UN-led Cool Coalition has announced a series of steps to reduce the climate impact of the cooling industry, including a GBP 12 million boost from the UK Government, the host of COP26.

United Nations Environmental Program, Executive Director, Inger Andersen, according to a statement said, the need for cooling in their daily lives, to protect people against heat extremes will grow. But the way they cool their homes and workplaces is a major driver of climate change.

The Minister for Pacific and the Environment at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park said, he is delighted that they announced GBP 12 million of Defra Official Development Assistance programming today to provide valuable assistance to developing countries, enabling them to make rapid progress on reducing hydrofluorocarbons and adopting energy efficient cooling solutions.

A transition to efficient and climate friendly cooling, including natural solutions, could allow the expansion of cooling and avoid 4-8 years of global emissions.
