Greenhouse gas emissions from refrigerants – information for hotels

The leakage of refrigerant gas is a small but significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, because of the high Global Warming Potential (GWP) of most of these gases.

In hotels, refrigerants are involved in a wide range of end-uses: refrigeration in kitchens and individual guest rooms, cold rooms, ice machines, chillers and unitary air conditioning systems, heat pumps, and refrigerated transport.

Hotels that report on their greenhouse gas impact need to include refrigerants as part of Scope 1 under the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

This report explains everything hoteliers need to know to assess their refrigerator and include it in their reporting. Download the report here. 18/3/2016
