UNEP: United Nations Environment Programme, the branch of the UN which provides leadership and encourages partnerships in caring for the environment.

IIR: International Institute of Refrigeration is a scientific and technical intergovernmental organization enabling the pooling of scientific and industrial know-how in all refrigeration fields on a worldwide scale.

E.E.C.: European Energy Centre, founded and based in the United Kingdom. The E.E.C. is the answer to the lack of highly skilled and qualified technicians in the renewable energy sector both in Europe and in developing countries.

CSG: Centro Studi Galileo, established for 36 years has held thousands of training courses in energy and climatisation, organised houndreds of conferences including thirteen European Conferences on the latest energy saving technologies in climatisation; all of which identify the importance  of "Getting ready for Renewable Energy - GND"

TERRE: Centre for Technology, Education, Research and Rehabilitation of the Environment. An important centre in the University city of Pune, near Mimbai, India, TERRE with the European Energy Centre launched the Green New Deal in India.

ATF: Associazione dei Tecnici italiani del Freddo - Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians, together with CSG, ATF has the target of developing renewable energies  and the GND.

GND: Green New Deal revolution, this is the development of new green technologies. Its aim is energy saving and environment sustainability. This is seen by many experts in the field as the solution to overcoming the global recession.
