Aldi to install natural refrigerants across all UK stores
Aldi has unveiled plans to install natural refrigerants across all of its UK stores at a cost of around £20 million.
Up to 100 of its stores are set to be converted by the end of 2018.
With all stores converting to CO2 refrigeration units, Aldi estimates the move will mean its potential refrigerant gas carbon emissions will be reduced by 99%.
The units are already in use across some of Aldi’s portfolio, including its recently opened Nuneaton store.
Mary Dunn, communications director at Aldi UK, said: “By choosing natural refrigerants, we are reducing our impact on the environment while also assuring our stores are future-proofed for years to come.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve our environmentally friendly credentials, and upgrading our entire stores to energy-efficient refrigeration is a key part of our commitment to being a responsible retailer.”
Aldi has previously announced that it will install 96,000 solar panels across its stores by the end of the year.
