Date added: 22.10.2021
Blue Angel is one of the most recognisable environmental certificates in the world. It constitutes a determinant for goods and services in terms of impact on the environment. Midea air-conditioning is the first of its kind in the world, that was awarded with the Blue Angel mark.
It is a standard for goods and services, a bio label, environmental marking, only granted to those who focus on ecology. Blue Angel equals prestige. Midea is the first manufacturer of air-conditioners with R-290 refrigerant, that obtained the German bio label. It proves that the company meets the highest environmental standards – said Kristian Mao-Chang Wilkening, project manager of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) during the Conference “Green perspective, blue future”.
It is not the only pro-environmental award. The outstanding contribution to fight against climate change was noticed by United Nations Industrial Development Organization. Midea worked for 10 years on a project, which aimed to create a solution that replaces HCFC-22 refrigerant with propane (R-290). According to UNIDO data, this project has eliminated 13.2 tonnes of ozone-depleting potential and reduced emission equivalent to 967 490 tonnes of CO2 annually.
