Hy-Vee is the latest U.S. grocery chain to join the Environmental Protection Agency's GreenChill Program to reduce refrigerant emissions.

"Hy-Vee is setting an excellent example of environmental leadership among supermarkets by voluntarily reducing the company's impact on the earth's ozone layer and on climate change,” says Keilly Witman, EPA’s GreenChill Manager. “We at EPA hope that Hy-Vee's commitment will spur its competitors to meet Hy-Vee’s standards and take the same challenge."

By joining GreenChill, Hy-Vee commits to:
• Require that all of its new and remodeled stores use environmentally friendlier refrigerants.
• Reduce the amount of refrigerant they use and eliminate refrigerant leaks.
• Adopt green refrigeration technologies, strategies, and practices.

The GreenChill Partnership was launched in 2007 and now has 49 partners with nearly 5500 stores. The EPA estimates that GreenChill supermarkets have refrigerant leak rates about 50% lower than the industry average.
