Ashden, K-CEP and ClimateWorks Foundation
Alternatives such as air conditioning are out of reach for many, and create emissions that fuel the climate emergency. Fair cooling is the future – but it isn’t spreading fast enough. That’s why Ashden, K-CEP and ClimateWorks Foundation have launched the $1 million Fair Cooling Fund, an ambitious project scaling up the impact of frontline fair cooling solutions.
The Fair Cooling Fund is helping eight organisations scale up their fair cooling innovation or deliver fair cooling for the first time. Organisations will receive a grant, tailored business support and global networking opportunities.
Those taking part include businesses, social enterprises and city authorities. All are committed to working closely with the vulnerable communities most at risk from heat stress. At the heart of the project is a co-operative, collaborative approach – innovators are learning from each other and inspire change beyond their own organisation.
As well as supporting fair cooling pioneers, the fund is raising the profile of cooling issues with policymakers, investors and other crucial audiences. A challenge this huge demands local, national and international action.
