REAL Alternatives - the Next Generation of Training and Certification
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor Documents
12:00

Organizer: Centro Studi Galileo

 

Title: REAL Alternatives - the Next Generation of Training and Certification 

 

Abstract: Since 2006, Europe has had regulations concerning HFC management, and from 2014 this has also included HFC’s phase down. The technology has transitioned quickly to favour low-GWP refrigerants and increase energy efficiency. Europe was the first region in the world to implement a phase down of HFC’s: its experience should be useful in supporting all the other regions of the world during the same transition.

 

This event will face relevant and up-to-date topics such as:

• Training and certification schemes, mandatory or voluntary, and their advantages (competitiveness, informal sector, etc.)

• Commitment to improving training, policy implications, etc.

• REAL Alternatives training impact: why organisations got involved in the project, what they have achieved and how they see the future.

Procurement Recommendations for Climate Friendly Refrigerants
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor Documents
18:00
Organizer: Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development (IGSD)

 

Title: Procurement Recommendations for Climate Friendly Refrigerants


Abstract: The Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) in partnership with the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development (IGSD) present specific procurement options to: 1) avoid high Global Warming Potential (GWP) hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants while purchasing new energy efficient refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and 2) reduce refrigerant leakage and service emissions. Participants will learn how to immediately apply this framework and to avoid obsolete refrigerants that will become increasingly unaffordable and unavailable. Savings in electricity from higher efficiency will be spent locally on food, housing, health and education and will help make the world prosperous for future generations.

Pursuing the Cold Chain-Near and Long-Term Opportunities for Sustainable Growth
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
19:00

Organizer: Global Food Cold Chain Council (GFCCC)

 

Title: Pursuing the Cold Chain-Near and Long-Term Opportunities for Sustainable Growth 

 

Abstract: As the early COVID-19 vaccine candidates prepare to distribute their doses worldwide, both developing and developed nations are facing structural deficiencies in their refrigeration capacity to store the vaccine. Going forward, urgent attention must be devoted to building a comprehensive cold chain infrastructure for these same nations. Several initiatives have been started to champion this effort and design suitable road maps for successful cold chain development both for vaccine distribution in the near-term and for food security and reduction of food loss and waste over the long-term. 

This side-event will introduce two projects to seize this opportunity. It will cover a joint partnership between UNEP and GFCCC to make a fact-based analysis of this critical cold chain sector to enhance food security and reduce greenhouse gas emissions resulting from food wastage and in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; and a GFCCC-led initiative to develop a technology matrix for countries who will face resource questions as they prepare to accept the coronavirus vaccine.
