July 2015 – Present
In Germany, I represent the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), an internationally renowned NGO with a track record of under-cover work and policy advocacy for more than 20 years. F-gases are cooling agents and powerful climate killers. Our work on F-gases used in, for example, air conditioners and freezers, promotes best practice in the implementation of the EU F-Gas Regulation in Germany through strong implementation of key provisions, protection of the existing ambition, progress towards strengthening the Regulation and the adoption of supportive national measures.
We developed a complete package of policy recommendations to significantly increase climate ambition through action in the cooling sector. As a result of our work, Germany is adopting stringent legislation against illegal trade in F-gases.
We engage with governments and the private sector to promote the adoption of natural refrigerants in supermarkets. See Publications: https://eia-international.org/report/chilling-facts-vii/
