Group Lead:    Keilly Witman,    KW Refrigerant Mangement Strategy

The goal of the policy group is to provide support to government bodies to help streamline approval processes for natural refrigerants, equipment and technology. We also provide technical and policy input to state and federal agencies where appropriate.


  • Address gaps in policy for natural refrigerants in relevant end-uses (e.g. EPA SNAP applications)

  • Coordinate with partners and members to support incentives for natural and low-GWP refrigerants 

  • Provide input and comments to help advance natural refrigerants:

    • At the state level in California(CA Air Resources Board Refrigerant Management Program; Short Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) Reduction Strategy.

    • At the federal level in the United States (U.S. EPA’s SNAP program and section 608 regulations)

    • At an international level through NGO organizations such as the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).


  • Progress group meetings are combined with monthly Codes & Standards meeting
  • Register for an upcoming Quarterly Policy Update webinar
