History - about the Prozon Foundation

The PROZON Ozone Layer Protection Foundation was established in September 1995. Its founders were two leading players on the refrigerant distribution market in Poland: Liquid Carbonic Polska Sp. z o.o. (LCP) and Termo Products Ltd. Currently , Air Products Sp. z o.o., Schiessl Polska Sp. z o.o., and at the end of 2003 a third founder joined – Linde Gaz Polska Sp. z o.o.

On 14 March 1996, the District Court for the city of  Warsaw entered the PROZON Foundation in the Register of Foundations. It is this date that we recognise as the “birth” of the PROZON Foundation.

The establishment of the PROZON Foundation was an important element in the implementation of international and Polish commitments related to environmental protection. Organising a system of recovery and regeneration of freons is one of the priorities for the implementation of the Montreal Protocol addressing the problem of substances that deplete the ozone layer. This document was signed in 1987, as a consequence of the Vienna Convention adopted two years earlier, whose signatories undertook to take action to save the ozone layer. Poland ratified the Protocol in 1990, and to date more than 180 countries have done so.

As of 27.06.2014. The foundation has changed its name. The new name is PROZON Foundation for Climate Protection.

Our mission

  • null

    Since its inception, the Foundation’s mission has been to protect the stratospheric ozone layer, shielding the Earth from harmful UV-B solar radiation and counteracting adverse climate change. Extensive action to protect the ozone layer, such as reducing the consumption and emission of ozone-depleting substances (so-called freons – CFCs and HCFCs) into the atmosphere, and, above all, the withdrawal from the market of substances dangerous to it, resulted in significantlyless degradation of the ozone layer. Despite the huge ecological effect, the Foundation faced new challenges. Modern refrigerants are still substances with a high potential to create a greenhouse effect, the so-called GWP (Global Warming Potential).


  • null

    For over 25 years, the PROZON Foundation has been conducting activities aimed at reducing the use, and minimising the emission, of refrigerants and SF6, with afocus on promoting recovery and regeneration, and facilitating best practice in this area.

    PROZON also undertakes initiatives aimed at shaping environmental awareness among users of these substances. All its activities directly contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating adverse climate change.

  • null

    Currently, the PROZON Foundation is the only entity in Poland performing the reclamation of fluorinated greenhouse gases, and thanks to the improvement of technology and the search for new solutions, it will also introduce modern pro-environmental solutions in the field of refrigerant management.

The history of our company in Poland dates back to 1990. Termo Products was founded at that time and soon became the country’s leading importer and distributor of refrigerants. In 1997, TERMO SCHIESSL was formed from the combination of the potential, knowledge and experience of Termo Products and Robert Schiessl GmbH, and the existing range of refrigerant gases was expanded to include a complete range of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and components.

In existence since 1924, the German company Robert Schiessl GmbH now has a network of companies in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Norway, Italy and is one of Europe’s largest wholesalers in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

Since the company was founded, we have been implementing cutting-edge technology, not only taking on the challenges posed by the market, but also setting the future direction of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry in the country.
Today, Schiessl Poland is a dynamically growing, important company on the domestic market, guided in its activities primarily by customer care expressed in the high quality of products and services offered, as well as concern for the environment and the broader interests of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

The company’s permanent inventory includes more than four thousand refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump products from reputable manufacturers, and it is possible to import any of the many thousands of other products upon request.

The company’s headquarters is currently located in Warsaw in a modern office at 46 Karczunkowska Street, and thirteen of its branches are located in major cities across the country.
In line with the company’s motto: WE DELIVER MORE THAN PRODUCTS at each of our 13 branches, in addition to sales service, you can get comprehensive assistance and technical advice in the design and construction of efficient, energy-saving and environmentally friendly refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. You can get the necessary information on next-generation green agents and get competent support on legislative issues.

The central logistics warehouse of Schiessl Poland is located in Środa Wielkopolska near Poznań, connected to a modern refrigerant and propellant distribution station suitable for filling all types of refrigerants.

The company’s greatest asset is its young, professionally well-prepared, dedicated team. It is not only the young age and enthusiasm that make up the value of the team, but also the knowledge and skills of all those employed by the company. We employ more than one hundred and thirty employees, three-quarters of whom hold university degrees. Among them are more than fifty graduates of technical universities, including forty-some engineers with majors in refrigeration and air conditioning.

We are co-founders and active participants in the nationwide refrigerant recovery and reclamation network coordinated by the PROZON Climate Protection Foundation. As part of the project implemented by the Foundation, a refrigerant gas regeneration center and an analytical laboratory have been launched, several hundred service companies have been equipped with professional ozone recovery equipment, and more than 5,000 installers have been trained in environmentally friendly techniques for operating refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

Our company is also a co-founder and active member of the industry’s employer organization, the National Refrigeration Forum, whose goals include. Protecting the rights and interests of the refrigeration industry, representing it before state institutions and bodies, and integrating companies in the industry.

In 2000, Termo Schiessl was accepted, as the first and only representative of Poland, as a member of IRWO – the International Refrigeration Wholesalers Organization, which for more than fifty years has been a platform for the exchange of technical, commercial and organizational experience of wholesalers from across Europe.
