Who Can Join

The GreenChill Corporate Emissions Reduction Program, “the Partnership,” focuses on food retailers, including supermarkets, grocery stores, co-ops, supercenters, and wholesale clubs that are willing to reduce company-wide refrigerant emissions.

Additional Partners include refrigeration system manufacturers and chemical producers that promote the adoption of alternative refrigerants, advanced refrigeration technologies, and operational best practices.

To be eligible to join the Partnership, prospective companies must meet these criteria:

  • Willingness to reduce company-wide refrigerant emissions, implement environmental best practices, and share information with EPA on efforts to transition to environmentally friendlier refrigerants, reduce refrigerant emissions, and adopt green refrigeration technologies.
  • Willingness to actively participate in GreenChill Partner meetings and events.
  • Have no current Clean Air Act enforcement issues.
