Roundy’s Inc., a leading grocer in the Midwest, announced that it is joining the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA's) GreenChill program, a partnership between the EPA and food retailers to reduce emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

As such, planning for the town’s new ShopRite supermarket included making sustainability a priority from product offerings to construction of the store itself — including the choice of refrigeration systems and display cases.
In late 2010, Sprouts Farmers Market set out to meet the EPA’s most stringent GreenChill standards with construction of its Thousand Oaks, Calif., store. Sprouts tapped Hill Phoenix to design a refrigeration system that not only would be environmentally friendly, but also energy efficient and cost effective to install and maintain.

It is one of the few supermarkets in the country that has achieved U.S. EPA GreenChill Gold-Level certification.
