The building sector in Asia Pacific is also undergoing an unprecedented growth- in fact, more than half of the world’s new building construction is taking place here. It is crucial that Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and its high-GWP alternatives do not get locked into the new construction coming up here. Policies and programs can have a far-reaching influence on enabling the building sector to shift to ozone and climate friendly alternatives.

ODS are used in refrigeration, airconditioning, foams and fire fighting systems in buildings. The course offers a detailed insight into the different policies and programs that address the use of Ozone Depleting Substances, particularly HCFCs, and alternatives in the Asia Pacific building sector.

The course has been designed in small modules with high quality visually engaging content. At the end of this course, you will have clarity on Asia Pacfic’s role in ozone protection and climate change mitigation and the importance of policies to achieve this. You will also be convinced that integrating ozone depletion with improved building energy efficiency is key achieve ODS phaseout in a sustainable manner.
