USA: Hillphoenix has earned another GreenChill award, this time for installing more advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-certified stores than any other partnering manufacturer in the past year.
Hillphoenix systems were installed in over 85% of the GreenChill-certified stores this year.
“We are proud to be a founding member of the EPA’s GreenChill programme and very appreciative of the recognition of Hillphoenix’s continuous efforts to advance sustainable technologies in partnership with customers on best practices,” said Scott Martin, director of business development and industry relations for Hillphoenix. Martin accepted the award for the company at the Food Marketing Institute Energy & Store Development Conference in Dallas, Texas.
This is Hillphoenix’s 8th successive GreenChill recognition since the programme launched in 2007.
“Hillphoenix continues to demonstrate notable environmental leadership through their design and installation of a variety of advanced refrigeration systems for many food retail companies,” said Tom Land, manager of the EPA’s GreenChill programme. “Hillphoenix should be proud of their valuable contributions to the adoption of environmentally friendly refrigeration.”
The EPA’s GreenChill Partnership works with supermarkets to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their environmental impacts. The partnership helps supermarkets move to environmentally friendlier refrigerants; reduce harmful refrigerant emissions; and adopt greener refrigeration technologies and best practices. About 11,000 GreenChill Partner stores operate in the US.
