This month’s edition sees industry hitting back at criticism from outspoken entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson that efforts to realise more sustainable cooling have been “pathetic”
A US$3m cooling prize intended to support new green innovation across the sector has gained some fairly strong publicity after the industry’s existing efforts for more sustainable operations came under attack from Sir Richard Branson.
February’s RAC Magazine looks at the prize’s focus on encouraging ultra-efficient and viable cooling solutions, as well as a frank industry response to Sir Richard over how the sector is already looking to face up to the low carbon challenge. The business tycoon’s Virgin Unite charitable foundation is associated with the cooling prize.
This month’s issue also covers retailer Aldi’s efforts to rethink its approach to coldrooms in its stores with an eye on lower carbon emissions and bills. The magazine also carries calls from one major manufacturer of cooling technologies in the UK and Ireland for the British government to deliver certainty on its Brexit policy, even if the reality is “not nice” for industry.
