Icebox Advocates for Greener, Sustainable Cold Chain Ecosystem

Through the Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines (FCC) Project, a ceremonial turnover of refrigerated containers to Icebox Logistics Services, Inc. and other beneficiaries was held on March 6, at the Cold Chain Innovation (CCI) Hub in Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) complex in Taguig City.
Referred as “green reefer containers”, the reefer containers which incorporate CO2 in place of conventional synthetic refrigerants are the first ever in the Philippines towards sustainable transport in the country’s cold chain industry. With the help of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), TESDA, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Global Environment Facility (GEF), and partners, alternative cold chain technologies are now available and accessible to improve how we transport food in the Philippines. According to TESDA, these sustainable technologies will foster economic growth and environmental stewardship, a true milestone for the food chain sector.  
Icebox, together with Ideamorphosis, Inc. and Insight Supply Chain Solutions, received the demo units-20ft (6m)-long CO2 (R744) containers-subsidized under the FCC project.
