Our Environmental Responsibility
In the present climate people are more aware that ever regarding the responsibility that falls to every single person with regards to environmentally aware practice, whether that’s in a domestic or commercial setting. Businesses operating within the commercial catering, food service and hospitality sector are appreciative of how their equipment choices and the procedures and routines observed during operation can impact the environment. Similarly, companies which work closely with this sector such as manufacturers and distributors, including ourselves at Fridge Freezer Direct, also acknowledge that we have our part to play.
A Rapidly Progressing Industry
Progression in technology means that the commercial refrigeration industry is rapidly evolving and developing new equipment that observes high environmental awareness. It’s an exciting time as ‘green’ manufacture, design and energy efficient features advance in leaps and bounds. Whether with regards to refrigerants (in line with F-Gas Regulations) or Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) labelling, manufacturers and customers have never been more well-informed or in such a positive position when looking to reduce their environmental impact.
Our Promise to Our Customers
At Fridge Freezer Direct we supply a wide range of commercial refrigeration from brands leading the way with regards to best environmental practice. We encourage our customers to invest wisely in energy efficient equipment with low Global Warming Potential (GWP) in order to minimise carbon footprint whilst still equipping their business with products perfectly suited to their individual requirements. We also promote responsible collection, recycling and disposal of used commercial refrigeration in line with WEEE Regulations.
We actively display all MEPS labels where applicable and where relevant details are available, providing full information regarding refrigeration performance and efficiency. This ensures that customers make the right choice not only for their business but for the environment as well.
Offering advice and aftercare to guarantee equipment continues to run at optimum efficiency after purchase, we are with you every step of the way.
How We Operate
Not only do we aim to help our customers be environmentally aware with their equipment choices and subsequent use but also strive to observe environmental awareness within our business on a day-to-day basis.
Employing ‘green’ practices within the company, we encourage all team members to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle where possible and be responsible with regards to energy and water usage by switching off lights, turning off taps and always shutting down computers at the end of the day.
