The newly opened Piggly Wiggly #444, located on 2424 Woodruff Farm Road in Columbus, Ga., has earned platinum GreenChill certification, thanks to a partnership with Kysor/Warren, a division of Dallas-based Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration. The store is one of a handful in the nation to attain the program's highest certification for environmentally friendly refrigeration systems, and only the second store in Georgia.
"Piggly Wiggly's commitment to achieve GreenChill certification standards for its new store proves that the company is serious about its role in protecting the ozone layer and preventing climate change," said Tom Land, manager of the Washington, D.C.-based EPA GreenChill Partnership, which works with supermarkets to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change. "It is important that companies understand that helping the environment has become the business model of the future."
