Refrigeration specialist Hillphoenix has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) GreenChill 2019-20 Store Certification Excellence (non-supermarket) award.
Hillphoenix, a Dover Food Retail and Dover company and a pioneer in designing environmentally sustainable refrigeration systems, has now won the award for nine years running.
This achievement recognizes the commercial refrigeration systems manufacturer that has installed more advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-certified stores than any other partnering manufacturer in the past year.
During the 2019-2020 cycle, Hillphoenix systems were installed in 433 stores, over 84% of the GreenChill-certified stores.
Scott Martin, director of research, industry relations and development at Hillphoenix, commented: “We are proud to be a founding member of the EPA’s GreenChill program, which underlines Hillphoenix’s continued commitment to sustainable technologies and refrigeration solutions.
“We greatly appreciate the EPA’s recognition of Hillphoenix’s efforts to continually advance sustainable technologies in partnership with its customers.”
Meanwhile, Kirsten Cappel, GreenChill program manager, added: “We congratulate Hillphoenix for their ongoing achievements as part of the GreenChill Store Certification Program.
“By earning the Store Certification Excellence award for nine consecutive years, Hillphoenix has shown that supporting the supermarket industry’s focus on reducing harmful refrigeration emissions and its transition to advanced refrigeration technologies is not only good for the environment, it is good business.”
GreenChill Program is a voluntary partnership with food retailers, refrigeration system manufacturers, and chemical manufacturers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their environmental impacts.
