Technical and Policy Dialogue


Retailers and other industry leaders should proactively engage with stakeholders in industry and policy settings to help overcome any remaining barriers to a widespread adoption of low-GWP technologies and a rapid phase-down of HFCs. This includes membership and participation in various forums on key topics including standards and codes, supply chain availability of low-GWP refrigerants, technician training and certification, and costs and performance of technologies. Examples of leadership in this area include:

  • participation in implementing the Consumer Goods Forum 2016 Refrigeration Resolution

  • membership and active participation in national standards and codes bodies including Underwriters Laboratories, and ASHRAE

  • proactive engagement with policymakers such as through the EPA GreenChill Partnership, regulatory workshops, or indirectly through other non-governmental organizations or industry associations
