District cooling helps the environment by increasing energy efficiency and reducing environmental emissions including air pollution, the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) and ozone-destroying refrigerants. Most Middle Eastern governments are parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. With most countries in the region having high GHG emissions per capita, this issue has become relatively important for government policy and the District Cooling Service department of KAHRAMAA is playing its leading role in specific decision- making process along with other departments of KAHRAMAA and major organizations and service providers in Qatar.
