Climate friendly refrigeration in Organic Food Retail / small store sector


Help to promote the switch to climate-friendly technologies in the small (organic) food retail sector and thus reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by participating in this online survey.  The survey is part of the Refrigerants, Naturally! for LIFE” project, which supports the uptake of climate-friendly cooling alternatives among end-users of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) equipment, and servicing providers.

Current technologies often still rely on refrigerants with high global warming potential (GWP). Climate-friendly alternatives include natural refrigerants, such as CO2 (R744), hydrocarbons (R290, R600a) and ammonia (R717).
