The report, developed by Carrier in partnership with market development specialist shecco, seeks to provide a clear picture of the key drivers for and against the adoption of sustainable refrigeration and refrigerant options, and the impact of legislation on such developments across Europe.
shecco undertook research to reveal attitudes toward sustainability and carbon-footprint reduction among major food retailers, with a particular focus on investment in refrigeration and natural refrigerant technologies. The findings are drawn from qualitative research with quantitative elements, conducted by shecco among food retailers located in western and northern Europe, with a focus on Germany, France, the UK, Denmark and Norway. The research project was carried out from 10 January to 17 February, 2014. The market research received responses from 50 food retailers across Europe, 34 of those 50 respondents provided valid results which have been included in the report.
