Foster Refrigerator release 2013 CSR report

Continuing with their strategy to use independent bodies to audit and verify their information, Foster Refrigerator, owned by global company ITW, has substantially improved its corporate social responsibility (CSR) credentials according to their latest CSR report released yesterday.

Focusing on four key areas - climate change, social responsibility, sustainability and independent verification - the report shows that the EcoPro G2 product launched in 2012 with a traditional 600 litre refrigerator uses less energy than a traditional light bulb, and further independent tests reveal the cost to run an EcoPro EP700H (Foster's most popular model) at only £65.30 per annum.

Foster is also the first commercial refrigeration company to receive recertification from the Carbon Trust, having first achieved this in 2010. An annual carbon reduction target of 2.5% has been achieved and exceeded with an improved carbon efficiency figure of 14% (for the period 2009-2011).

Other highlights within the report show 51% of component suppliers within a 35 mile radius of the Foster factory and with 85% of overall suppliers from the UK, and a 64% reduction in CO2 emissions per cabinet produced.
