このような教訓はすべて新たに冷凍小冊子で取り上げられ、CGF加入の小売業者、メーカーの会員から、どのようにしてHFCを段階的に廃止し、代替冷媒の代替選択肢(http://bit.ly/CGFRefrigBook )をいかにして成功裏に試験導入、実施したか多くの実体験を紹介している。CGFはこの重要な問題について会員社の関与を称賛し、小冊子がこのやり方を他業者も引き継ぐ役に立つことを希望している。

アルバート・ハイン(Albert Heijn)、ロイヤル・アホールド(Royal Ahold)のエマ・コールズ副社長(リテール担当)、SABMiller plcのシニアマネジャー(環境価値担当)でCGFの冷凍ワーキンググループ共同議長であるアンドレ・フーリエ氏は「CGFは2010年以来、有害なHFC冷媒を段階的に廃止するために精一杯声を上げてきた。そして、2015年が終わってわれわれは今、会員が冷媒ソリューションの影響を言い広め、業界全体を前進させるよう支援する。これを念頭に、理事会はCGFの持続可能性チームが将来を見据え、新しい決議の可能性を含めて、2015年を超える最善の方策について話し合うよう呼びかけた」と語った。

CGFは同日、気象変動小冊子(http://bit.ly/CGFClimateBook )の改訂版も公表した。会員社が食品廃棄物、リサイクル、持続的調達、エネルギー効率などさまざまな活動を通じて、気象に好ましい影響を与えるようビジネスを変革する20余りの実例を紹介している。

Consumer Goods Industry Calls for Positive Next Steps to Continue Scale-Up of Low Carbon Refrigeration


PARIS, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

      The Consumer Goods Forum Successfully Closes Resolution on Refrigeration;

Publishes Booklet Highlighting Natural Refrigeration Success Stories

    The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) today announced the successful closing of

its 2010 Board Resolution on Refrigeration [


] and the publication of its first-ever Refrigeration Booklet

[http://bit.ly/CGFRefrigBook ]. The CGF Board has also called on the

Sustainability Steering Committee to develop a potential resolution to show how

the industry will further scale up low carbon refrigeration in the future.

    In 2010, the CGF made a commitment to tackle the growing climate impact of

the refrigeration systems used by its members. The refrigerant gases used in

the majority of systems (known as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)) are powerful

greenhouse gases. At the time, the low carbon technologies to replace HFCs were

unproven and so took the decision to commit to trialing new approaches to

refrigeration by 2015.

    Today, CGF members have installed low carbon refrigeration systems in over

4,000 supermarkets, four million ice cream and drinks chiller units worldwide

and industrial plants with the majority being natural refrigerants. This work

has taught the industry valuable lessons about issues such as low carbon

technology options; deployment costs; energy demands; performance in hotter

climates; and the availability of skilled installers and maintenance engineers.

    These learnings have been captured in the all-new Refrigeration Booklet,

which highlights over a dozen real-life examples from the CGF's retailer and

manufacturer members on how they are phasing out HFCs and successfully piloting

and implementing natural refrigeration alternatives

[http://bit.ly/CGFRefrigBook ]. The CGF applauds the engagement of its members

on this critical issue and hopes the booklet will help inspire others to take

up the baton.

    Emma Coles, Vice President, Responsible Retailing at Albert Heijn and Royal

Ahold, and Andre Fourie, Senior Manager, Environmental Value at SABMiller plc,

Co-Chairs of CGF's Refrigeration Working Group, said, "The CGF has been a

leading voice on phasing out harmful HFC refrigerants since 2010. And, although

2015 is now over, we remain committed to helping members amplify the impact of

their solutions and in bringing the entire industry forward. With this in mind,

the Board has called on the CGF's Sustainability team to look forward and

discuss how best to drive scale-up beyond 2015, including the possibility of a

new resolution".

    The CGF also today published an updated version of its Climate Change

Booklet [http://bit.ly/CGFClimateBook ], which includes over 20 examples of how

members are making business changes to have a positive impact on the climate

through various activities on food waste, recycling, sustainable sourcing and

energy efficiency.
