Sustainability

Within the scope of social and environmental responsibility, Metalfrio Solutions constantly considers a management priority to develope and inspire a sense of environmental resposibility, among all its stakeholders.

Metalfrio has developed a complete range of green coolers that operate with impact free gas, up to 60% less energy consumption, lower operating expenses and overall better performance at the POS. Within this context, our design team seeks for sustainable solutions and practices in all stages of design and production while utilizing recyclable materials in order to minimize the carbon footprint of its products.

Furthermore, to enhance its sustainability leadership, Metalfrio implements its own carbon management strategy to reduce its environmental impact. In order to enhance our carbon management methodology, specific actions were taken to improve each and every process. Natural gas utilization and low electricity consumption were set as prior points that can create a rapid effect on Klimasan’s carbon footprint, together with waste management/reduction and recycling.

Klimasan is the first company in commercial cooler industry to receive ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certificate.

Starting in 2011, and calculating and reporting our Carbon Footprint every year, Klimasan has managed to reduce our Scope 1&2 carbon emmissions more than 46% from 2011 to 2015. In 2016, a new 5 year carbon emission plan was set.
