Countdown recently unveiled its newest Auckland store located on Stoddard Road in Mt Roskill. The Countdown Mt Roskill has been carefully designed and constructed to reduce its impact on the environment. It features energy efficient CO2 refrigeration plant systems, night blinds on refrigerated cabinets, sliding covers on freezers, heat reclaim off the refrigeration coils and energy efficient lighting.
Refrigeration innovation in stores is playing a big part in helping Countdown achieve some very difficult targets"and is part of the business-wide sustainability programme and effort to reduce its carbon footprint and energy consumption.
One of the most refreshing aspects is that Countdown is looking at the full life-cycle cost of its refrigeration systems, and is constantly looking and trialling new technology that will hopefully provide an even more efficient, greener system that is also reliable," said a Countdown spokesperson.
