After the hottest summer on record, this year has underscored the urgent need for sustainable cooling.
However, there is a clear challenge. The cooling industry accounts for an estimated 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
In a panel discussion, speakers will consider how to balance the need for accessible and affordable clean cooling for people already living with dangerous levels of heat with the simultaneous goals of reducing emissions and meeting climate targets.
Join the discussion to better understand the different ways passive and sustainable active cooling contribute to a healthier and more environmentally friendly future.
