Hillphoenix Earns 9th Consecutive EPA GreenChill Excellence Award

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., October 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Hillphoenix, part of Dover Food Retail and Dover (NYSE: DOV) and a pioneer in designing environmentally sustainable refrigeration systems, has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) GreenChill 2019-20 Store Certification Excellence (non-supermarket) award.

This achievement recognizes the commercial refrigeration systems manufacturer that has installed more advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-certified stores than any other partnering manufacturer in the past year. During the 2019-2020 cycle, Hillphoenix systems were installed in 433 stores, over 84% of the GreenChill certified stores. This is Hillphoenix’s ninth consecutive GreenChill recognition since the category was created in 2011.

“We are proud to be a founding member of the EPA’s GreenChill program, which underlines Hillphoenix’s continued commitment to sustainable technologies and refrigeration solutions,” said Scott Martin, Director of Research, Industry Relations and Development at Hillphoenix. “We greatly appreciate the EPA’s recognition of Hillphoenix’s efforts to continually advance sustainable technologies in partnership with its customers.”

“We congratulate Hillphoenix for their ongoing achievements as part of the GreenChill Store Certification Program,” said Kirsten Cappel, GreenChill Program Manager. “By earning the Store Certification Excellence award for nine consecutive years, Hillphoenix has shown that supporting the supermarket industry’s focus on reducing harmful refrigeration emissions and its transition to advanced refrigeration technologies is not only good for the environment, it is good business.”

  • In the mid-1990s, the company introduced Second Nature systems, one of the first cooling technologies to reduce global-warming emissions.
  • Thousands of Second Nature systems have shipped by Hillphoenix utilizing low global warming potential and natural refrigerant solutions.
