CAREL USA Joins NASRC Membership At Platinum Level
CAREL USA, a subsidiary of CAREL Group, recently joined the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) at the platinum level. The NASRC is an action-oriented 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to creating a climate-friendly future for refrigeration through natural refrigerants.

CAREL USA is a manufacturer of controls and humidification systems for HVAC and refrigeration in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Globally, CAREL Group has demonstrated a commitment to fostering a climate-friendly future for refrigeration through equipment that is compatible with natural refrigerants.

“At the core of CAREL’s culture, and this has been true for over 40 years, is a focus on honoring the opportunity to enable environmental and business sustainability in our industry. Our solutions development, both internally and with partners around the world, is highly focused on helping the industry achieve or beat low GWP and TEWI targets. This means we are committed to dramatically reduced refrigerant charge requirements, leak potentials, and the availability of efficient natural refrigerant solutions that make a difference,” said Alessandro Greggio, Group Chief Sales & Marketing Officer for Refrigeration.

As grocers face increasing regulatory pressures to reduce the carbon footprint of their refrigeration systems, the demand for low global warming potential (GWP) refrigeration technologies has risen. Natural refrigerants have zero or near-zero GWP, and as a result offer a future-proof solution to regulations.

However, these technologies are associated with a number of barriers that have prevented their wide-scale adoption in the US, such as upfront cost premiums, a shortage of workforce training, lack of performance data, and technology gaps in existing stores.

NASRC works directly with 130 companies from every sector of the supermarket industry to eliminate those barriers and bring natural refrigerants on par with other refrigerant options. Together with the industry, they drive forward solutions that offset upfront costs, establish new training resources, provide performance data for the industry, and address technology gaps.

"CAREL understands the necessity and the difficulty for retailers and their partners to transition to natural refrigerants in a cost-effective way,” said Martino Manfrin, CEO CAREL USA. “NASRC was founded to help the industry do that - to keep up with regulations, to bring important innovations to the forefront, to share challenges, and best practices across the membership - with the goal of moving the industry forward to ultra-low GWP solutions. It's a clear and simple choice for CAREL to be a part of that." 

 “We are pleased to welcome CAREL USA to our network” said Danielle Wright, executive director of NASRC. “CAREL Group has helped to advance natural refrigerant technology solutions internationally, and we look forward to leveraging their global expertise to drive progress here in the US.”

In addition to CAREL USA, NASRC’s member network represents over 24,000 US supermarket locations and stakeholders from all sectors of the commercial refrigeration industry, including service contractors, manufacturers and suppliers, consultants, engineering firms, trade associations, distributors, and nonprofits.
