WEBINAR: Climate Friendly Refrigerants- The role of procurement

November 13, 2020

If your organization is serious about addressing climate change, you are probably aware that reducing/eliminating the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) has been identified as one of the top strategies for climate action. However, until now, clear guidance wasn’t available for purchasers seeking to procure equipment with climate friendly refrigerants. That’s why the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council, in partnership with IGSD, convened an Action Team to develop guidance for purchasers seeking to take action in this area.

To learn more about these efforts, join our webinar on 18 November 2020.

You’ll learn about the importance of taking action to address the climate impacts of refrigerants, explore a new toolkit available to support purchasers in taking action, and hear how an institutional purchaser is integrating the new procurement recommendation into their contracts for refrigerant-containing equipment. You’ll also learn about a new collective action campaign that will allow purchasers, suppliers, and public interest advocates an opportunity to lead the way in reducing the climate impacts of refrigerants.
