Environmentally friendly refrigeration systems are needed to mitigate the climate change

The current EU regulations already address the environmental impact of refrigeration systems by replacing high GWP refrigerants with low-to-zero GWP refrigerants. Recent studies, however, show that these will not suffice to adequately mitigate climate change. In addition, even improvements in energy efficiency will not suffice, due to the increasing cooling needs. If this is the case, how can we meet the future cooling needs in an environmentally friendly manner?
