Haier’s Contribution toward Decreasing the Impact of Climate Change in Pakistan

49

The rapidly emerging climatic changes are one of the biggest threats to the sustainability of life on Earth. The phenomenon of global warming is a major cause of environmental degradation. The enhanced discharge of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in our outer atmosphere due to fossil fuel combustion leads to a rise in Earth’s average temperature besides polluting the air. Climate change is causing adverse impact on Pakistan in the form of heavy rains, floods, droughts and glacier-melting.

To reverse the effects of climate change, smart and eco-friendly choices can make a big difference and a positive impact on our lives. Haier AC commits to providing solutions to meet environmental protection regulations. Haier’s R-32 cooling gas used in Air Conditioners is Eco & Ozone-friendly which reduces the harmful effects of global warming to a great extent.

To see the complete picture of refrigerants, one has to go back to the past when air conditioners used the R-22 refrigerant, popularly called ‘freon’. This cooling medium was abandoned because it had a negative effect on ozone and was replaced by the R-410A, which is still in use today, it not ozone-depleting but has a relatively high GWP coefficient (global warming potential) of 2088. This is why a new ‘environmentally friendly’ R32-grade refrigerant was made. Its GWP stands at 675, and it is another medium following the downward trend of GWP towards 1 (CO2 gas amount), which is being sought after by the air-conditioning industry.

Haier is the first company in Pakistan to use R-32 gas to reduce the impact of global warming and on the ozone layer ultimately contributing to reducing the impact of climate change. Protecting our environment is a key priority for us. Haier as a company contribute their part to reducing the climate impact, let’s join hands with Haier to save nature.
