Cool Up played a vital role in the launch of Jordan’s National Cooling Strategy, working in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and the Royal Scientific Society. On 20th March 2023, H.E Dr. Mohammad Al-Khashashneh, Secretary General of the Ministry of Environment, and the Vice President of the Royal Scientific Society, Eng. Rafat Assi, alongside Cool Up’s partners from Guidehouse, Öko-Recherche, and the United Nations Development Program, led the kick-off event.
The National Cooling Strategy aims to address the challenge of increasing demand for cooling and its impact on energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and the environment. The strategy’s steering committee discussed the initial cooling action plan, methodology, and goals to promote sustainable cooling in Jordan including reducing energy consumption and the use of refrigerants with high global warming potential.
Together with our partners, Cool Up is looking forward to continuing working closely with the Ministry of Environment on promoting solutions for sustainable cooling and natural refrigerants in Jordan.
