A ‘Cool Calculator’ scenario planning tool is also available to help companies and governments run simple calculations on key aspects of cooling decarbonisation to enable them to identify the set of solutions that works best for them. More details are available at the Cool Coalition website.
The first ever report tracking progress made by cooling suppliers towards the Race To Zero and Cooling Climate Action Pathway is now available. Cooling Suppliers: Who’s Winning the Race to Net Zero, states that 49 out of 54 companies assessed have yet to commit to ambitious net zero targets, despite some efforts to reduce their emissions.
The report – released by the Race to Zero campaign, K-CEP, the Carbon Trust and other partners in the UN Environment Programme-hosted Cool Coalition – assesses cooling firms against three key impact areas defined in the Cooling Climate Action Pathway. The report calls on cooling firms to show increased ambition to line up with net zero commitments from over 100 governments and many other private sector actors.
“Efforts to race to net zero cooling present an incredible opportunity to meet ambitious climate, environment and development goals and unlock the clean energy transition” said David Aitken, Director, Innovation at the Carbon Trust. “These tools show how we can get there.”
