Current emissions from the refrigeration sector in Colombia are in the magnitude of 4.5 Mt CO2e (2014) and are projected to double by 2030. Emissions originate from the use of high Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants (~15 per cent) and energy consumption (~85 per cent). An in-depth study highlights the high potential for transformational change and GHG emissions reduction of 50 per cent compared to the BAU scenario in the sector.
