Auteurs : COULOMB D.


The impact of the refrigeration sector on climate change is important and growing. It is now recognised as a key challenge for successful climate change mitigation and adaptation. But the Paris agreement is based on Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). The challenge is therefore at that level now. Introduction: refrigeration is at the heart of a sustainable development. The impact of refrigeration uses on climate change is huge and will increase due to the growing population, especially the urban population in developing countries, which will have increasing needs for food and health products, but also for air conditioning, information technologies and other traditional or new technologies requiring refrigeration systems. In other words: refrigeration is necessary for life. We will therefore present the impact of the refrigeration sector on climate change, and then the actions at international, regional, and national level to address these challenges. Refrigeration is now a global priority, but we still need to define and implement strategies for all refrigeration equipment at the country level.
