Technical Platform on the Measurement and Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

Sustainable cooling congress. Cooling for all ... without over-heating the planet

Hybrid Event, 24/04/2019

London, UK - The UK Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the World Bank and University of Birmingham are delighted to invite you to join an in-depth international congress that will support the World Bank and partners in developing a first-of-its-kind, multi-sectoral Roadmap and co-ordinated time bound actions to provide sustainable cooling for all those that need it – urban and rural, air conditioning and comfort cooling to cold chains for food and medicine, whilst meeting our climate change targets.

Building on what is already being achieved, the goal is to work together to set the world on an accelerated course towards access to affordable and sustainable cooling solutions for all who need them.

Such an initiative can deliver a “win-win-win” solution, in which industry would win through faster market entry and growth, governments would win by healthier populations, lowered energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and consumers would win by benefiting from access to improved cooling services at accessible lifecycle costs.
