Brookshire Grocery Company actively monitors refrigeration systems through the use of leak detection systems and makes repairs to these systems as needed to ensure they remain leak-free. We are an active partner in the EPA GreenChill Program and we are committed to the reduction of our leakage rate of refrigerants. Our current refrigerant leakage rate is less than half of what it was just a few years ago, and our refrigerant leakage rate for 2014 was 9.8 percent. Our goal for 2015 is 9.3 percent.
We are constantly evaluating new refrigerants for use in our refrigeration systems and we incorporate new refrigerants when environmentally acceptable alternatives are found.
