USA: Hillphoenix, a pioneer in designing environmentally sustainable refrigeration systems, is claiming to have supplied equipment to 87% of US GreenChill certified stores over the last year.
The EPA’s GreenChill Certification is a programme which recognises food retailers that have reduced refrigerant emissions and decreased their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
These certifications — Platinum, Gold and Silver levels — benefit retailers on both an economic and environmental standpoint.
“Our commitment to developing and further improving these technologies illustrates to our customers and the industry, that we are dedicated to providing quality, sustainable products to help companies future-proof their business,” said Scott Martin, director of business development and industry relations.
Hillphoenix claims a consistent record of advancing sustainable refrigeration. In the mid-1990s, the company introduced one of the first cooling technologies to reduce global-warming emissions. Many systems shipped by Hillphoenix use natural refrigerants.
