Green Initiative

Green Chill LogoAt Almcoe, we know how important reducing the carbon footprint is to our customers. Refrigerant emissions are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to toxic materials that deplete the ozone. That’s why Almcoe has partnered with organizations like the EPA to help us assist our customers in reducing and eliminating their harmful impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

GreenChill is a program offered through the EPA which partners with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions in their stores. The goals of the GreenChill Partnership are to provide supermarkets and other industry stakeholders with information and assistance to:

  • Transition to environmentally friendlier refrigerants;
  • Reduce the amount of refrigerant used by stores and eliminate leaks; and
  • Adopt green refrigeration technologies and environmental best practices.
