Time: 13:00 CEST/14:00 EEST/14:00 TRT
Commercial refrigeration contributes to climate change through direct refrigerant emissions and energy consumption, but is also vital to keep food fresh, especially in hot climates like the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Natural refrigerants can help offset some of the negative effects of commercial cooling through more sustainable means. For a sector-wide transformation to occur, corporations will need to adopt and promote sustainable cooling and energy efficiency across the food supply chain.
As a part of the 2022 celebration of World Refrigeration Day, Cool Up hosted a webinar focusing on the benefits of using natural refrigerants for commercial refrigeration. The webinar drew on examples from the European Union and showcase the leading role of international trade and cooperation, specifically highlighting the global METRO F-gas exit programme in Türkiye and the use of natural refrigerants in a supermarket in Jordan. Join Cool Up as we look at ways to make commercial cooling better for people and the planet, across the MENA region and the globe.
