SOMETIMES the scale of our sustainability challenges take you by surprise.
This report was written by Nicholas Cox from Earthcare Products. It begins with some surprising stats: India's retail and logistics industry comprises of over 14 million outlets employing about 40 million people. That's a lot of fridges in very ambient conditions.
It goes on to say " By adopting energy efficiency measures and using natural refrigerants, supermarkets could achieve considerable cost savings, meet the highest standards of environmental performance and avoid unnecessary expenditure in the future. This will maximise the green dividend by reducing running costs and avoiding premature replacement costs, whilst making a significantly smaller demand on the Earths resources."
With those kind of numbers, you can believe it! Download the report here
