Highlights: Cop28, with less consumption of fridges and air conditioners -96% greenhouse gases - Lavoro & Sviluppo. Greenhouse gas emissions from the cooling sector will double by 2050 but could be reduced by between 60 and 96% with measures to reduce the energy consumption of equipment and the decarbonisation of the electricity grid. These measures would ease the pressure on energy grids and save trillions of dollars. This is according to a new UNEP report published while COP28 is underway in Dubai.

Greenhouse gas emissions from the cooling sector (e.g. refrigerators and air conditioners) will double by 2050 but could be reduced by between 60 and 96% with measures to reduce the energy consumption of equipment and the decarbonisation of the electricity grid. These measures would ease the pressure on energy grids and save trillions of dollars. This is according to a new UNEP report published while COP28 is underway in Dubai.
The report 'Global Cooling Watch, Keeping it Chill: How to meet cooling demand while cutting emissions', by the CoolCoalition led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), adds that end-users could save $1 trillion annually and the energy sector up to $000 trillion. According to current growth trends, cooling equipment now accounts for 5% of total electricity consumption and is expected to double by 20.
According to the report, there are three areas with sustainable cooling measures: passive cooling, higher energy efficiency standards, and a faster phase-down of climate-warming refrigerants. These measures would lead to a 2050% reduction in emissions; Adding rapid decarbonization of the power grid would cut them by 60%.
The report was published in support of the 'Global Cooling Pledge', a joint initiative between the UAE as host country of COP96 and the Cool Coalition. Today, more than 28 countries have signed the Pledge with a commitment to reduce the climate impact of the cooling sector.
