About GreenChill


GreenChill is an EPA Partnership with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

  • Adopt green refrigeration technologies and best environmental practices.

The GreenChill Partnership has three main programs that help food retailers reduce their refrigerant emissions:

  • The Store Certification Program for Advanced Refrigeration
  • The Advanced Refrigeration Promotion Program
