Thematic Working Groups

Alliance members across private and public sectors come together in thematic working groups (TWG) to jointly work on holistic solutions needed to reduce ODS and HFC banks. COPA thematic working groups are dedicated to specific topics:

  • Policy framework for effective ODS and HFC banks management 
  • Technology solutions for ODS and HFC recovery, reclamation and destruction 
  • Financing mechanism for GHG mitigation measures in the ODS and HFC banks sector 
  • Implementation models for ODS and HFC end-of-life management. 

Each thematic working group is coordinated by two co-leads (UNIDO, UNDP, GIZ) with support from the Secretariat. Working groups define their specific goals and work plans and implement activities together. The working groups meet on a regular basis and report annually to the Plenum.
