Climate Friendly Refrigerants: The role of procurement
November 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ESTFree
Reducing/eliminating the use of hydrofluorocarbons has been identified as one of the top strategies for climate action. However, until now, clear guidance wasn’t available for purchasers seeking to procure equipment with climate friendly refrigerants. That’s why the SPLC, in partnership with the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development, convened an Action Team to develop guidance for purchasers seeking to take action in this area.
In this webinar, you’ll learn more about the importance of taking action to address the climate impacts of refrigerants, explore a new toolkit available to support purchasers in taking action, and hear how an institutional purchaser is integrating the new procurement recommendation into their contracts for refrigerant-containing equipment. You’ll also learn about a new collective action campaign that will allow purchasers, suppliers, and public interest advocates an opportunity to lead the way on reducing the climate impacts of refrigerants.
