COOL IT FOR THE CLIMATE: Embracing Sustainable Cooling
In a world grappling with the escalating impacts of climate change, sustainable cooling practices have emerged as a critical area of focus. Refrigerators and air conditioners, two common household appliances, contribute significantly to global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Adoption of sustainable cooling habits among consumers is essential to mitigate the environmental impact of these appliances and ensure a more sustainable future.
Consumer choices play a pivotal role in shaping the environmental impact of cooling appliances. Simple changes in usage patterns and product choices can lead to significant reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting sustainable cooling practices, consumers can contribute to a collective effort to mitigate climate change and protect the environment.
Sustainable cooling practices among consumers are not just an option but a necessity for mitigating climate change and ensuring a sustainable future. By empowering consumers with knowledge, encouraging technology adoption, implementing behavioural nudges, leveraging social marketing, and establishing supportive policies, we can collectively reduce the environmental impact of cooling appliances and pave the way for a cooler, cleaner planet.
The "COOL IT FOR THE CLIMATE: Embracing Sustainable Cooling” Behaviour Change Campaign aims to nudge consumers to adopt simple sustainable practices for improving energy efficiency in refrigerant and AC use.
The campaign aims to influence consumers to:
- Improve energy efficiency
- Reduce the environmental impact of cooling
- Promote the health benefits of sustainable practices
- Reduce expenditure by using cooling appliances more efficiently
In support of our "COOL IT FOR THE CLIMATE: Embracing Sustainable Cooling” Behaviour Change Campaign, we invite school students to express their creativity and passion for a sustainable future through an online poster-making competition. This is an opportunity for young artists to raise awareness about the importance of energy-efficient cooling and refrigeration practices and their positive impact on our environment and health.
Theme: Participants are encouraged to create posters that showcase the significance of energy-efficient cooling and refrigeration practices, emphasizing their role in conserving energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and ensuring food safety.
Age Groups: We welcome entries from two categories:
Middle School (Classes VI-VII)
High School (Classes IX-XII)
Submission Deadline: All entries must be submitted by 10th December 2023.
