ASHRAE and UNEP Launch Three-Year Workplan


On April 15, ASHRAE and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) announced the launch of its 2021-23 workplan. The workplan’s theme is "Refrigeration Management for Developing Economies" and was signed by Charles E. Gulledge III, P.E., 2020-21 ASHRAE President and James S. Curlin, Acting Head of UNEP OzonAction Programme.

The theme of the workplan recognizes the important role that refrigeration and air conditioning play in developing countries both in terms of societal benefits, ranging from protecting the food supply and vaccine storage to cooling for increased comfort and productivity, as well as  environmental goals, including compliance with international commitments. The workplan emphasizes the deployment of all ASHRAE-UNEP developed tools and programs, to make them reachable and accessible to different stakeholders in developing countries.
