Epta is contributing to an important project in the Philippines to combat climate change. With its Iarp and Bonnet Névé brands, the Group is participating in the "Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines" project.
Through the official Cold Chain Innovation Hub (CCI-Hub) platform, Epta is contributing to create a unique ecosystem where industry experts work to converge resources and technical knowledge.
Additional goals of the project are training and the sharing of know-how, which are essential for promoting the use of natural refrigerants in the Philippines.
About two years ago, in keeping with the commitment made to the other partners and in collaboration with TESDA (The Philippines' Technical Education and Skills Development Authority), the Cold Chain Innovation Hub started with several objectives. Among them was constant training, which began with online seminars set up to inform about non-polluting refrigerants, which soon evolved into fully-fledged structured courses.
During the Technology Week, several key players in the Food Cold Chain, including Epta, presented some of the most cutting-edge systems in sustainable refrigeration to local experts.
These technologies will soon converge in a physical hub set up by TESDA and to which Epta donated two efficient and eco-friendly vertical display refrigerators: the Glee and Onwave plug-ins, branded Iarp and Bonnet Névé, respectively.
Now, with all the right tools at hand, an effective action plan needs to be developed.
The "Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines" project has three levels:
And Epta is among them.
The Group proves once again that being in the forefront of defending the planet means being fully aware of this: in addition to having common goals, mutual support is also needed.
