Environmentally Efficient Freezers For Cool Ice Cream

Environmentally Efficient Freezers For Cool Ice Cream
December 09
10:02 2014

From January 2015, every new horizontal chest freezer Nestlé buys to store ice cream will use natural refrigerants rather than synthetic refrigerants. The new freezers are more energy efficient than older models, using around half the energy of the most widely used freezers ten years ago.

These new freezers represent 70% of Nestlé’s total spend on freezers.

As well as helping reduce the company’s carbon footprint, they are also far more efficient for customers to run.

Nestlé plans to make all the freezers it uses more environmentally efficient by only buying those cooled by safe, natural refrigerants over the coming years.

“Already, in 2013, Nestlé committed itself to buying only new horizontal ice cream chest freezers with natural refrigerants in Europe,” says Pascal Gréverath, Head of Environmental Sustainability at Nestlé. “Now, we are making this pledge global. This is the second stage in a wider process of making our entire fleet of freezers more environmentally efficient, cooled using natural refrigerants. These actions contribute to ensuring that Nestlé products are not only tastier and healthier but also better for the environment along the entire value chain.”

The company has invested SFr250 million to implement natural alternatives in 93% of its industrial refrigeration systems.
