Commitment to sustainability
“We decided to join the GCI in 2022 to pursue our intention of being a more sustainable business,” said Erika Carvajal, Senior Manager of Project Marketing at Güntner.
The company has been working on several sustainability projects and is partnering with networks that will help advance its efforts, she explained.
“We also plan to contribute to the network with our technical expertise and engineering excellence,” she added.
According to the manufacturer, it is leading the industry with its “solid actions,” which include participating in training and webinars, and developing strategies.
In recognition of its commitment to natural refrigerants, Güntner was the first company to renew its Natural Refrigerants Label from ATMOsphere, a global market accelerator of clean cooling and heating solutions and publisher of R744.com.
The label is designed to help qualified manufacturers to market products to new customers and regions in the natural refrigerants marketplace, including products using CO2 (R744). The label is also meant to help end users to identify best-in-class suppliers.
“We are very pleased to be re-approved for the ATMO label for 2023 as it uniquely reflects our growing natural refrigerant business,” said Michael Freiherr, Managing Director of Güntner. “The label proves that our efforts towards a sustainable world are bearing fruit.”
A call for new members
The Green Cooling Network offers members information, advice and opportunities to collaborative with other participants, says the GCI on its website.
“We organize personal network meetings [and] webinars, and share resources with you,” it adds. “In addition, you have the opportunity to present yourself and your best practices on our website.”
The GCI has recently invited new manufacturers to sign up to its network of stakeholders, which is free to join.
