Evolve into Retail Sustainability
Advanced. Efficient. Sustainable.
Hussmann is your partner in the refrigeration industry. As the needs of retail industry customers have evolved over the past century, we have evolved to provide solutions for our current and future world.
Investments in Sustainability
Hussmann's Evolve Technologies are more than just environmentally friendly; they're built for a future focused on low-GWP refrigerants. The technologies that facilitate the use of your choice of refrigerant are critical to the future of refrigeration. It’s why we’ve been at the forefront of building solutions that work with R290 and CO2.
Globally, refrigeration and air conditioning contribute to approximately 10% of CO2 emissions. We proudly support the U.S. EPA GreenChill Partnership in its efforts to recognize food retailers that reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
In all areas of our business, from our equipment to our services to our internal processes, we seek ways to act responsibly and support our customers with their sustainability efforts.
Refrigeration & Food Safety
Optimized Retail Refrigeration
Hussmann was among the first American manufacturers to design, engineer and deliver a propane R290 system for full-sized merchandising displays to refrigerate perishable foods, such as meat, produce, dairy products and beverages for its food retail customers throughout the United States.
is a major scientific and technological breakthrough. Capable of providing excellent refrigeration in full-sized grocery merchandisers even with a small propane charge, it uses 90-95% less refrigerant than other refrigeration systems that are charged by hydrofluorocarbons, which are a particular kind of greenhouse gas emission.
Hussmann's new highly efficient Transcritical CO2 Rack System has a GWP of only 1, making it an ideal choice for retailers constructing new facilities or striving for net zero retail sustainability goals.
