New EP100 Cooling Challenge Brief: Efficient Cooling in a Warming World

The Climate Group‘s new brief – ‘Efficient Cooling in a Warming World‘ – shines a spotlight on three EP100 Cooling Challenge participants in India and the Middle East, who are cooling their corporate operations efficiently and reaping annual cost savings while also lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

As the world adapts to the impacts of climate change, and as emerging economies grow and develop, the demand for cooling is rising at an alarming rate. Electricity demand for air conditioning is projected to increase by more than 140% worldwide by 2050, and, if left unchecked, the related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions could reach nearly double 2016’s levels.

This is particularly so in non-residential buildings, with significant cost implications for the private sector. Rising temperatures across the globe mean that companies’ cooling systems will need to work harder and for more days per year.

The Climate Group’s EP100 initiative, in partnership with the Alliance to Save Energy, brings together forward-thinking businesses poised to lead by example by improving cooling efficiency across offices, factories, retail stores, and hotels. ​​

This ‘Efficient cooling in a warming world’ briefing shines a spotlight on three EP100 Cooling Challenge participants in India and the Middle East, who have identified ways of cooling their corporate operations efficiently. They are reaping annual cost savings while lowering GHG emissions.


By improving their energy productivity, companies can boost their competitiveness.

Science shows that in the Climate Decade, we must halve carbon emissions by 2030 to avoid the worst effects of climate change. By sharing their experiences, leading companies are inspiring others to follow suit, helping us to reach net zero by 2050.
