As part of its work to support the RACHP in moving towards net-zero, the IOR, the British Institute of refrigeration, has recently joined the “Cool Coalition” – a global initiative which supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement around cooling, with the aim of transitioning to efficient and climate-friendly cooling for all using a comprehensive approach.
Through the Cool Coalition, IOR will join leading international organisations such as the International Institute of Refrigeration, EPEE amongst Cool Coalition members to work together on strategies and technical solutions that reduced carbon emissions. The Coalition represents 23 countries and 47 international and civil society organisations, as well as businesses and universities.
The IOR’s work as part of its membership of the Coalition will be focused through its “Beyond Refrigeration” initiative. This identified seven critical areas and is preparing a template which provides a step-by-step approach to help end-users of all sizes to review where they are now and what they need to do to start making changes that will lead them towards net zero aspirations.
