Is going green right for you?

ProductWhat shade of green is your facility? The costs – and benefits – of green design are different whether you operate a restaurant preparing organic, sustainable foods, a hotel applying for LEED® certification or a grocery needing to lower its energy bills.

Many customers of Heatcraft Refrigeration Products have taken steps to reduce energy bills by installing high-efficiency package systems, Smart Defrost Kits™ and other products. Others take even more steps toward sustainability – a deeper shade of green – and may apply for certification through one of many green design programs, including the popular LEED rating system.

To encourage green hospitality and retail design, the USGBC introduced a Portfolio Program, a pilot involving 40 companies designed to streamline the cost and time associated with the LEED process. Buildings built to approved specs could be certified more quickly and easily. (While participation in the program has closed, you may send an email to for more information.)
