Lack of access to cooling puts over 1.1 billion people at risk according to a report from Sustainable Energy For All. Cooling impacts daily life and survival—from refrigeration for food and live-saving medicines to air conditioning to prevent heat stroke on hot days—and the report raises concern that income inequality is a contributing equity concern, where only the elite have access to the health outcomes that come with access to cooling. Supported by MacArthur and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program, the report gives essential context to achieving the goal to limit consumption and production of hydroflourocarbons (HFCs) as set forth in the Montreal Protocol’s Kigali Amendment.
