We are passionate about giving back to the communities in which we live and work. We partner with and support organizations around the globe that contribute to fighting hunger and supporting the growth and development of children and teens.
Our most significant partnership is with Feed the Children, a leading nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger. As part of our partnership in 2021, we conducted a 10-city “Alliance to Defeat Hunger” tour with Feed the Children and Tyson Foods to provide food and essentials to vulnerable families. During the four-month initiative, we served thousands of families across the U.S., supplementing nearly 2 million meals and providing more than 250 tons of foods and essentials to families valued at nearly $1.9 million.
203 Americold sites have been recognized by the Global Cold Chain Alliance with Gold, Silver, or Bronze status certifications under the Energy Excellence Recognition Program for driving energy excellence in temperature-controlled warehousing.
129 Facilities hold Safe Quality Food certification.
Creating ideal environments within our facilities is the epitome of what we do, and environmental stewardship is foundational to our operational principles. We implement energy management best practices in our facilities around the globe, driving sustainability from the ground up. Energy efficient building designs and layouts, waste walks, associate training, water conservation actions, recycling programs, and more are integrated into our practices and operations to evolve standard processes and continually improve performance across our network.
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.
Our newest temperature-controlled facilities are more than 92 times more efficient at freezing and keeping product frozen than your typical domestic freezer.
