Dear Green Cooling community,

Sustainable cooling is an incredibly multifaceted topic, also in our day-to-day project work: from creative training formats for refrigeration technicians ("Cool Training for sustainable and cool careers"), to the responsible handling of waste from refrigeration equipment ("Lessons learned from the ODS banks project"), to vaccination efforts supported by efficient, climate-friendly cooling ("emmunize: Construction of a vaccination shelter for young children"). Green Cooling has a lasting impact on many areas of life and offers enormous savings potential to achieve national and global climate targets.

We constantly emphasise this message in personal conversations, in project activities and through a variety of (virtual) events. To repeat the closing words of the virtual Green Cooling Summit 2021 (see also highlights video below): "The future is now - and not 2030." Enjoy watching and reading our latest Green Cooling news!

Stay healthy & stay cool,

Bernhard Siegele
Programme Manager GIZ Proklima
