This Project aims to establish state of the art energy efficiency standards and labelling (EES&L) in the air conditioning (AC) sector in Brazil and encourage to low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants in order to improve cooling efficiency and ultimately reduce GHG emissions. Implementing Agency The Instituto Clima e Sociedade (iCS) is the implementing agency for all components of this project.
In order to fulfill this objective, the Kigali Project is structured in four components:
Development of energy efficiency management plan for AC sector
Revision of MEPS & labelling policies and programmes for the AC sector
Development of Project proposal to finance a compressor manufacturing line capable nof producting high efficiency and alternative refrigerant invertor technology.
Leveraging finance for implementation support.
Sustainable Future Dialogues
Sustainable Future Dialogues is a series of international meetings, resulting from a partnership between iCS and the German Embassy in Brazil, which grew from a long history of cooperation between the two countries about climate. In 2015, this commitment was reaffirmed by the signing of a Joint Declaration about Climate Change, which has become an important platform on which Brazil and Germany cooperate in the realization of the objectives and targets of the Paris Agreement.
To hold international meetings about key topics for the exchange of experiences, practices and knowledge directed towards local and global targets relating to climate.
To place the topic of climate change at the center of the schedule of national development, especially in the political, social, economic and business, short and medium term agendas.
To disseminate and debate strategies for sustainable development.
To motivate and optimize multilateral and multisector actions that lead to compliance with the targets of the Paris Agreement.
