Environmentally friendly and energy-efficient cooling technologies with natural refrigerants are gaining ground: but as we move into the future, we must not forget the huge emissions stocks in our old cooling appliances. This virtual side event provides an overview on global F-Gas banks, potentials of banks management and options for market-based approaches.

This side event will be held as part of the IETA Business Hub during COP 26. It is organised by GIZ Proklima on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
