Pledge for R32 as the Preferred Refrigerant in the HVAC Industry


We, the undersigned individuals, and organizations in the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) industry, recognize the importance of adopting environmentally friendly and sustainable practices in our work. In pursuit of a greener and more responsible future, we hereby pledge our commitment to prioritize the use of R32 as a preferred refrigerant.


Why R32?

R32, also known as difluoromethane, stands out as a promising choice for refrigeration and air conditioning systems due to its many advantages:

Low Global Warming Potential (GWP): R32 has a significantly lower GWP compared to traditional refrigerants like R410A, making it a more eco-friendly option in the fight against climate change.

Energy Efficiency: R32 has excellent thermodynamic properties, which contribute to higher energy efficiency in HVAC systems, reducing both operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

Safety: R32 has a lower flammability risk compared to some other low-GWP refrigerants, making it a safer choice when handled and installed correctly.

Availability: As R32 adoption increases, its availability and affordability continue to improve, making it a practical choice for the industry.


Our Commitment

In alignment with our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability, we pledge to:

Promote R32 Education: We will educate ourselves and our stakeholders about the benefits and safe handling of R32 as a refrigerant.

Prioritize R32 Adoption: We will actively seek opportunities to use R32 in new HVAC installations and retrofits where feasible and appropriate.

Advocate for R32: We will advocate for policies and regulations that encourage the responsible use of R32 and other low-GWP refrigerants in our industry.

Reduce Emissions: We will implement best practices to minimize refrigerant emissions during installation, maintenance, and decommissioning of HVAC systems.

Collaborate and Innovate: We will collaborate with manufacturers, suppliers, and fellow HVAC professionals to drive innovation in R32 technology and solutions.

By taking this pledge, we commit to making a positive impact on our environment, reducing our carbon footprint, and contributing to a more sustainable HVAC industry.

Together, we can lead the way towards a greener future, where R32 is the preferred refrigerant in the HVAC industry, benefiting our planet and future generations.
