U.S.-based Lineage Logistics, one of the largest cold-storage operators in the world, has committed to becoming carbon net zero by 2040 in part by optimizing its refrigeration systems and use of refrigerants.
Lineage’s plans were shared by Aer Teale, Director of Engineering at Lineage Logistics in a presentation on the intersection of energy, sustainability and refrigeration during the End User Keynotesession at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) America Summit 2022 on natural refrigerants. The conference, which took place June 7–8 in Alexandria, Virginia, was organized by ATMOsphere, publisher of Ammonia21.com.
In September 2021, Lineage joined The Climate Pledge with the aim of becoming carbon net zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Climate Accord’s 2050 target. To achieve this goal, the company is working to establish science-based targets for its Scope 1 (direct), Scope 2 (indirect – energy) and Scope 3 (indirect – value chain) emissions ahead of releasing its first carbon report later this year.
