We Will: Efficient, Climate-Friendly Cooling For All
The Cool Coalition has come together rapidly under the recognition that ensuring the transition to efficient, climate-friendly cooling for all is fundamental for climate action and sustainable development.

Pillars of Action

The Cool Coalition has come together rapidly under the recognition that ensuring the transition to efficient, climate-friendly cooling for all is fundamental for climate action and sustainable development.

Together with its partners, the Cool Coalition works around three key pillars to accelerate the global transition to efficient and climate-friendly cooling:

  • Advocacy: Highlighting benefits and opportunities of efficient, climate friendly cooling.
  • Action: Mobilizing commitments to action and targets from leaders in government, business, and civil society and connecting these to global policy processes.
  • Knowledge Exchange: Building an active learning community that breaks down silos and promotes cross-cutting approaches.

Working Groups

The core of the Cool Coalition’s work is driven by members-led working groups. Since September 2019, Coalition members have created 9 working groups on priority intervention areas in the cooling sector.
