Dear Green Cooling community,

Happy new year 2024!

In this newsletter, we look back to an exciting year 2023 with many successful conferences: our Green Cooling Summit 2023 in October counted more than 1.000 registrations. We took part in the first Montreal Protocol Pavilion at the climate COP28, and in the 5th International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5).

In 2023, we successfully continued promoting Green Cooling worldwide: 23 new members joined our Green Cooling Network and around 3.000 trainers, experts and technicians participated in our trainings and learnt how to safely handle natural refrigerants, including 60 participants of the Cool Trainings in Germany.

Now, we are looking forward to 2024 and more opportunities to promote Green Cooling. Join us in our upcoming events. Therefore, we cordially invite you to check our website regularly.

Thank you for your valued cooperation and trust. We would especially like to express our gratitude to our commissioners without whom our project work would not be possible: the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), and the European Union (EU).

Enjoy reading & stay naturally cool,

Bernhard Siegele
Programme Manager GIZ Proklima
