North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council

The North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) is an action-oriented nonprofit dedicated to advancing natural refrigerants to create a more sustainable, climate-friendly future for supermarket refrigeration.

Why Naturals?

Natural refrigerants have orders of magnitude less impact on the climate than traditional fluorocarbon refrigerants and are considered the "future-proof" refrigerant options for supermarkets. 

However, there are many unique challenges that are slowing the progress of natural refrigerants such as codes and standards, availability of trained contractors and service techniciansutilities and energy efficiency, and return on investment.

What We're Doing

NASRC is focused specifically on tackling the unique set of challenges natural refrigerants face in North American markets to make them an attractive option for supermarkets.

NASRC is committed to bringing together experts including engineers, end-users, consultants, contractors and service technicians, and manufacturers, among others to contribute to progress groups that are tackling each issue area.

Together with our board of directors, members, and partners, we’re working to show how natural refrigerants can be a win for the environment, and for business.
