At Americold, driving improvements in energy efficiencies is an ongoing commitment. Environmental stewardship is foundational to our operating principles at Americold. We are continually evaluating how to use our resources more responsibly – that means being mindful of our water usage and focusing on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions among other priorities.
Consistency is a beautiful thing. From a customer perspective, it provides comfort; your favorite chain restaurant offers a similar experience whether you’re dining in Atlanta or San Francisco. From a business owner’s perspective, it provides efficiency; process consistency saves time and resources.
At Americold, we proudly give back to our communities as part of our “cold hands, warm heart” culture, and 2020 has been a year like no other. In response to COVID-19 and other events, we increased our support to charitable organizations around the world. As we take time to reflect on the year, we are proud of the support we’ve provided to the communities in which we live and work.

Read more here. This month, we’re looking at how the consistency this ecosystem delivers translates into dependable uniformity for our customers, as well as saved time and money. We’ll also explore AOS innovation and its benefits.
Business as usual. COVID-19 put this cliché on ice and has introduced us to unprecedented times and new normals, rocking business models to their core and forcing change where none was wanted. As retail, healthcare, education, travel, banking, and other sectors struggle to adapt, we’re seeing new trends, new challenges, and new opportunities emerge.
