Several aspects of sustainability apply to cooling systems. These are related to the integrity and availability of the system from an operational standpoint and impact upon the environment and ecological balance. This involved a multitude of factors, disciplines, and operations, not only of the subject cooling system, but also of outside services and ecological systems. This paper presents and discusses various factors and topics that have an influence upon the sustainability of a cooling system, related to the operation and longevity of the cooling system, and impact upon the environment, with a view to improve sustainability.
