Gram retains Sustainable Restaurant Association Approved Supplier accreditation
Gram is proud to announce that it has retained the Sustainable Restaurant Association Approved (SRA) Supplier accreditation amid changes to the entry criteria.
Changes to the SRA approved supplier programme make for a more robust process, which is better for both supplier and members. The criteria for becoming an SRA approved supplier are now significantly more all encompassing and focuses more heavily on the ethics of a company rather than a marketing tool to be used by companies.
Glenn Roberts, managing director of Gram UK commented “To retain the accreditation Gram had to complete a comprehensive survey that demonstrated the company’s on going commitment to providing energy-efficient, sustainable products along with substantial evidence to back up our claims. We are extremely proud that Gram has retained the RSA approved supplier accreditation and it is testament to the on going hard work of the team and the company’s green ethos that run’s through every decision made”.
Recognised industry-wide and by The Sunday Times as the ‘Michelin Stars of Sustainability”, gaining SRA approval allows suppliers to market themselves by their environmental and social credentials.
Gram strives to achieve the most energy efficient refrigeration across its entire range, and was the first refrigeration manufacturer in Europe to introduce hydrocarbon refrigerants across its whole product range. Gram also offers an unprecedented warranty of five years on all upright and counter refrigeration units, giving customers peace of mind as well as guaranteed ROI.
As a forerunner in refrigeration technology innovation, Gram set out to develop a new range of commercial refrigeration that would revolutionise energy efficiency standards across the industry. Gram’s drive for improved sustainability and commitment to product innovation, has seen the brand raise the bar above and beyond industry standards.
With more than 40 products listed on the Energy Technology List (ETL), managed by The Carbon Trust, Gram’s dedication to producing energy efficient products is ever growing.
Launched in April 2014 Gram’s SUPERIORPLUS 72 and ECO PLUS 70 are revolutionary in design and boast ground-breaking technology. The SUPERIORPLUS 72 is a staggering 35% more energy efficient than its ‘best in class’ Plus 600 (Generation 4) predecessor. The energy use and therefore running costs, have decreased massively from 509kW/year to 310kW/year.
