Clean Cooling Collaborative

Founding Year: 2017

Staff: 8

Budget: $30m (2017)

Noah Horowitz (Director)

A joint program dedicated to supporting energy-efficient, cooling solutions with a low global warming potential in developing countries. CCC was formerly known as Kigali Cooling-Efficiency Program. It focuses “not only on air-conditioning and refrigeration, but also on other cooling solutions such as building design, shading, cool roofs, and super-efficient fans.” It acts based on the conclusion that air conditioner efficiency, at a time when A/C demand is soaring worldwide, is one of the most important actions to cut CO2 and mitigate climate change.


Note: Paul Hawken’s Drawdown project publishes a list on A/C efficiency and the management or destruction of coolants as the #1 measure out of 80 with the highest impact on climate change by 2050.
