Refrigerant management.
A top climate change challenge.

Refrigerants provide us with the privilege to be comfortable, safe, and productive; however, some are super pollutants, and they can have a negative impact if they are not managed properly.

Trakref recently wrote a joint research paper with Vanderbilt University Law School on what private companies can do to lead. It’s called Private Governance Response to Climate Change: The Case of Refrigerants, and it’s available to download now.

Project Drawdown lists refrigerant management as a top solution to curb climate change.

Project Drawdown lists refrigerant management as a top solution to climate change.

While a lesser known solution to helping solve global warming, refrigerant management should not be overlooked.

In fact, refrigerant impact over time is sometimes greater than expected, and this could be true across your building portfolio.

In fact, the most common refrigerants in use today have ozone-depleting potential (ODP) or global warming potential (GWP), such as R-22, R-410A, R-404A, and R-134a. 

Moreover, installed refrigerant banks have continued to grow over the past several decades, and, because of mechanical issues and a lack of awareness on this issue, refrigerant leaks have unfortunately proliferated.

It’s likely that your HVAC/R systems could be significantly leaking refrigerants that are considered super pollutants, and you have a choice and responsibility to manage them properly throughout their lifecycle.
