Promoting a sustainable cold chain
USA: The Global Food Cold Chain Council (GFCCC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) OzonAction will convene for a virtual World Cold Chain Symposium next month.
Sponsored by Carrier, the session – Promoting Sustainable Cold Chain: From Data to Action – will be held on September 14.
It will focus on international policies and technology directions related to the sustainable cold chain solutions and their contribution to a global environmental and sustainable development agenda. It will discuss several ongoing industry-supported initiatives and programmes aimed at tackling the cold chain programme in terms of data and tech assessment as well as technology selection and best practices. Participants will include high-level expert representatives from government, industry, the international community and NGOs.
It is said that the symposium will be one of a number of important international events that will explore the issue, including notably the upcoming United Nations Food System Summit in September, the next meetings of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in October, and 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in October/November.
