About Us

We’re building a future where sustainable cooling is a fundamental human right.


Recoolit fights to create a livable future for humankind.

As the world gets hotter and the global economy grows, cooling in all its forms becomes a fundamental human right. It’s impossible to imagine the modern world without air conditioning and refrigeration, but these technologies come with a massive cost in climate impact. Recoolit exists to mitigate emissions from cooling and ensure that health, safety, and comfort can be available to all, without compromising on sustainability.


Recoolit was born out of a deep conviction that global problems are solvable.

In 2019, Recoolit CEO Louis picked up Project Drawdown, a comprehensive ranking of climate solutions. He saw that refrigerant management was #1 on the list. The scale was immense: 3 gigatons of emissions yearly and growing. And it was tractable: no new scientific breakthroughs were needed.

He expected to discover that the problem was under control and that solutions were imminent. But as he learned more, spending nights and weekends studying the problem and talking to dozens of experts, he realized the world needed a new approach.

Refrigerant management had slipped through the cracks of public awareness, and the existing solutions were completely inadequate compared to the size and scope of the problem. We founded Recoolit to address this critical, neglected aspect of the climate crisis.
