Last chance to contribute to Retail Code of Conduct

The consultation period for the Code of Conduct for Carbon Reduction in the Retail Refrigeration Sector closes on Tuesday 31st May.

Following the successful development of the Code of Conduct, IOR and BRA have initiated a stakeholder consultation phase with the objective of seeking feedback on the Code. Stakeholders are being invited to take part in the consultation (see documents attached bottom right).

Code of Conduct background and objectives

In summary, the objectives of the Code of Conduct project are as follows:

1)      Develop best practice advice for carbon reduction in the retail refrigeration sector, in the form of a Code of Conduct written by industry, for industry.

2)      Provide, through the Code, a framework that encourages all parts of the sector to improve the energy efficiency, and reduce the carbon emissions of commercial refrigeration systems.

3)      Enable the refrigeration industry to demonstrate voluntary action through participation in, and endorsement of, the Code.

The Code has been written, with the support of the Carbon Trust, by industry stakeholders who participated in working groups on the following topics:

  • Training and skills
  • Containment
  • Buildings
  • Testing and inspection

How to participate in the consultation

The consultation documents are attached to this email for your review. There are three documents; the Rationale, Best Practice Guide and Technical Specification.

Take time to read these documents and provide feedback using the attached form. Feedback should be constructive in nature and should focus on the following key themes:

Has all of the relevant best practice advice for the four topics been adequately covered?

Are there any additional sources of information that you would like to see referenced in the Technical Specification?

Are there any inaccuracies that should be addressed?

All feedback should be returned to rebecca.woollam@aeat.co.ukby 31st May 2011. Only feedback provided in the attached form will be accepted.

Following the close of the consultation we will review all feedback and make amendments to the Code of Conduct documents as appropriate. It is anticipated that finalised versions of the documents will be ready for release by IOR and BRA at the end of June 2011.
