Thermo King, a Trane Technology company, is at the forefront of innovation in the field of transport refrigeration. Francesco Incalza, president of Thermo King EMEA (here, a recent interview we recorded at Solutrans 2021) participated in the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) conference, held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, along with several other primary players in the cold chain sector.
Thermo King: 2030 Sustainability Commitments
Mr Incalza shared insights on climate innovations, including electrification, low global-warming potential (GWP) refrigerants, pathways to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and other avenues that can help bend the curve on climate change, in alignment with the company’s 2030 Sustainability Commitments. As he told us a few months ago, Thermo King is working closely with customers, dealers and other partners to deliver emission-free refrigerated transport of the future, while providing lower emissions options today.
«Transport refrigeration technologies have tremendous capability to decarbonize our cities», said Francesco Incalza (pictured below). «When we look at the climate crisis, we see ourselves as part of the solution, and the decisions we make today will impact generations to come. We can change an industry, but none of us can do this alone – we need cross-industry collaboration».
A valuable help from telematics
As 10% of the world’s carbon emissions comes from global food loss, developing and leveraging reliable, low-emissions solutions to address this challenge also plays a critical role in accelerating carbon footprint reduction in transport refrigeration. Thermo King’s telematics technology and expertise helps ensure consistent temperature regulation for the transportation of food and other critical goods – including medicine and vaccines – by refrigerated vans, trucks and trailers, and across marine, rail and air sectors.
