During the United Nation’s 31st Meeting of the Parties (MoP), taking place this week in Rome, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE), the voice of the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump industry in Europe, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
Andrea Voigt, EPEE Director General, said: “We are very proud to sign this Memorandum of Understanding with UNEP as it is a formal recognition of our excellent cooperation over the past years. Joint projects include raising awareness and providing pragmatic solutions such as modeling programs and analytical tools to assist developing countries in reaching the objectives of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol while improving energy efficiency. In a nutshell: the industry experience in the EU can be shared in a useful way to help mitigate the climate impact of the sector and contribute to protect the environment.”
In line with raising awareness on sustainable cooling, EPEE also published its white paper “Count on Cooling: A five- step approach to deliver sustainable cooling” during the 31st MoP. EPEE and its members are committed to provide and promote sustainable solutions that are fit for the future, demonstrating the industry’s value by contributing to carbon neutrality, and helping the EU to achieve its Paris Agreement goal.
