Sprouts, Whole Foods Win Green Grocer Award

The Environmental Protection Agency has named Sprouts Farmers Market and Whole Foods as the nation’s two top winners in the government’s GreenChill Partnership.

Phoenix-based Sprouts and Austin-based Whole Foods are being recognized by the government for reducing harmful refrigerant emissions. Whole Foods has seven stores in Arizona.

Sprouts earned GreenChill’s top award, Best Emissions Rate, for achieving the lowest corporate-wide emissions out of all participating GreenChill supermarket companies. To participate in the GreenChill Partnership, grocery stores must invest in more environmentally friendly refrigerants, reduce the amount of refrigerant they use, eliminate leaks, adopt green refrigeration technologies and environmental best practices.

Whole Foods received the Most Improved Emissions Rate Award for having the most significant reduction in its corporate refrigerant emissions rate from the previous year.

More than 7,300 stores belong to the EPA’s GreenChill Partnership.
