GreenChill to Explore Green Globes in Webinar

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill partnership, a voluntary program designed to help retailers reduced refrigerant charge and leaks, will explore the use of the Green Globes building rating system in a webinar on Feb. 28.  

Green Globes’s rating system introduced in 2004, us run by the non-profit Green Building Initiative (GBI), Portland, Ore., is an alternative to the more widely adopted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) system used by numerous food retailers.  Whole Foods Market and Wegmans Food Markets, two retailers that have used the Green Globes system, will discuss their experiences in the webinar, which will also include representatives of Green Globes.

GreenChill has worked with GBI “to give credit for the use of environmentally-friendlier refrigerants, reducing the amount of refrigerant used, and reducing leaks,” said Keilly Witman, manager of GreenCHill. “I hope {this] will make the rating system particularly appropriate for supermarkets.” 

The webinar will take place February 28th at 2 pm ET at The call-in number is 1-866-299-3188 and the conference Code is 202 343 9742#.
