Cooling for All Secretariat

The Cooling for All Secretariat is a platform for coordinating responses to address access to cooling. The Secretariat aims to identify the challenges of providing access to affordable, sustainable cooling solutions for all, and to seize opportunities to support access initiatives.

The Secretariat takes an “efficiency-first” approach that emphasizes the need to think systematically about what cooling services people require and how to deliver them in a way that minimizes energy demands. This gives priority to simple solutions, like white roofs/walls, alongside other high-efficiency cooling technologies that run on sustainable energy.

Our work is guided by the Global Panel on Access to Cooling, a group of leaders from business, philanthropy, policy and academia committed to providing Cooling for All.

Learn more about the need for sustainable cooling through our flagship report Chilling Prospects or by exploring our Knowledge and Data resources and the Access to Cooling Initiatives supported by the Secretariat.
