The Catalytic Coalition
A global movement to shape the future of responsible refrigerant management and destruction
The Catalytic Coalition helps companies to identify the refrigerants used within their facilities, specifically the CFCs and HCFCs that are potent greenhouse gases, and make sure that their climate commitments include responsible refrigerant management and end-of-life destruction.
Increasingly, large organizations are calculating their emissions as a first step to taking long-term sustainability measures. But when making these calculations, those companies often overlook the vast amounts of high-GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants deployed in chillers and cooling systems throughout their facilities. As a result, many companies are stewards of these potent greenhouse gases, which are at risk of being released into the atmosphere - often without even realizing it.
Businesses that participate in the Catalytic Coalition gain strategic, customized, and cost-effective plans to transition their facilities’ refrigerant use to less-polluting alternatives.
How The Catalytic Coalition works:
Tradewater helps participating businesses inventory the refrigerants under their control and then calculates the emissions associated with those refrigerants.
Tradewater designs a strategy for participating businesses to convert cooling systems from those that use highly potent greenhouse gases to less-polluting alternatives. For the potent CFC and HCFCs, in particular, we prioritize strategies that orient toward the most responsible end of life solutions, namely destruction.
Tradewater provides opportunities for participating businesses to bring awareness to the problem presented by refrigerant gases and to leverage their industry-leading efforts to catalyze broader commitment by encouraging others to join the effort.
