A recent hat trick was announced by Meijer, as it has been recognized for the third consecutive year by the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) GreenChill Program. The retailer was spotlighted for having the lowest corporate-wide refrigerant emissions rate out of all GreenChill Partners nationwide over the past year.

Vik Srinivasan, Chief Administrative Officer, Meijer"Lessening our impact on the environment through a continued commitment to reduce carbon emissions is important to us and our customers," said Vik Srinivasan, Chief Administrative Officer for Meijer. "We've made significant progress toward our goal of reducing our absolute carbon emissions 50 percent by 2025, thanks in part to our teams' continued focus on refrigeration management through our partnership with GreenChill."

As an active participant in the EPA's program since 2012, Meijer focused on reducing its refrigerant leak rate and is well below the industry average of 25 percent. In 2022, the retailer also earned the Store Recertification Excellence Award for its store in Marysville, Ohio, achieving five consecutive years of GreenChill Store Certification.

The GreenChill program is a voluntary partnership with food retailers, refrigeration system manufacturers, and chemical manufacturers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change. According to a press release, GreenChill provides supermarkets and other industry stakeholders with information and assistance to transition to environmentally friendlier refrigerants, reduce the amount of refrigerant they use, eliminate refrigerant leaks, implement environmental best practices, and adopt green refrigeration technologies.

Congratulations to Meijer on this impressive achievement!
