Insulated products require less energy. Insulation materials that have as low a greenhouse gas effect as possible are desired.
- Technical specification
- Professional refrigerators and freezers
All equipment that provides cooling or heating shall be insulated.
With regards to refrigeration equipment, the gases used in the manufacture of insulation materials shall have a maximum global warming potential (GWP value) of ≤10.
The supplier shall, upon request, be able to present any of for example the following:
- Product information sheet or product label that states that the product is insulated and names the gas that was used in manufacturing the insulation materials and its GWP value.
Ensure that the delivered products are insulated and that any gases used have a GWP value that is in accordance with the requirement.
Information about the criterion
GWP stands for "Global Warming Potential" and is a measurement of the capacity of a greenhouse gas to contribute to the greenhouse effect and global warming. The GWP value can be used to calculate the carbon dioxide equivalent emissions for each respective gas.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
