Making a Difference

At Americold, we proudly declare that we have a “cold hands, warm heart” culture as our nearly 13,000 Associates provide the temperature-controlled supply chain infrastructure and solutions that help put food on tables around the world and make mealtimes meaningful. Providing those solutions is an energy-intensive activity, but we’re dedicated to delivering our products and services in a responsible way to contribute toward creating a better world for our Associates, our communities and our planet.

Committed to Environmental Best Practices

Creating ideal environments within our facilities is the epitome of what we do, so environmental stewardship is foundational to us and our operational principles. We implement energy management best practices in our facilities around the globe, driving sustainability from the ground up.  From energy efficient building designs and layouts, to waste walks, Associate efficiency coaching, water conservation actions, supporting local recycling programs, and more are integrated into our practices and operations to evolve standard processes and continually improve our performance across our network.

Advanced Technology for Sustainable Solutions

At Americold, we’re using the latest energy management technology to keep operations at the highest levels of efficiency.

We use real-time metering and monitoring tools at more than 90 percent of our facilities. And where available, we participate in utility demand-response programs – lowering emissions and helping to reduce our carbon footprint. It’s all part of our commitment to energy sustainability, to you, and to a healthy planet.
