Cold chain links to net zero online

UK: A new virtual event, aimed at companies involved in the storage or distribution of chilled or frozen food, has been announced for the end of September.

Cold Chain Live! Towards a Zero Carbon Cold Chain, comprising new publications, on-demand interviews, live workshops and discussion forums, is aimed at helping businesses prepare for one of the most important challenges for the coming decade – the path to decarbonisation.

For four themed weeks beginning Monday 28 September 2020, Cold Chain Live! promises to bring together businesses from the cold chain with experts from the fields of energy, retail, logistics, vehicles, buildings and economics.

“With the challenges of navigating recovery from Covid and Brexit changes on the horizon, it would be easy for our industry to lose sight of the major changes in technology, customer demand and regulation that will drive demand and opportunities to decarbonise the cold chain,” commented Cold Chain Federation chief executive Shane Brennan.

The themes to be examined through Cold Chain Live! Towards a Zero Carbon Cold Chain are defining net zero, changing demand, future of transport and cold chain ecosystem. 

Each week will begin with the publication of a new Cold Chain Federation paper and supplementary expert blogs introducing the theme on Monday, followed by the release of a new leader interview giving the perspective and insight of a cold chain industry leader on Wednesday, finishing with a virtual workshop and wash-up open discussion on the Friday. All content and virtual attendance is free.

The Cold Chain Live! virtual event series will be delivered in partnership with Star Refrigeration, Schmitz Cargobull, The Supply Chain Consulting Group and Savills.
