True Making your world cooler logo

True is exceeding California Energy Commission and
Department of Energy standards without sacrificing quality through the following methods:

True Green Innovation Fan motor

Green Innovation

Emphasizing green innovation like our Reverse Condensing Fan Motor, which reverses during defrost off cycles to help keep condenser coil free from dirt, dust and debris. Keeping coils clean optimizes the unit's performance providing colder holding temperatures and increased energy efficiency.

True Recycled Materials

Utilizing Recycled Materials

Utilizing green materials and components such as recycled composite materials and Ecomate®, the blowing agent with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of Zero and an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of Zero. Developing refrigeration equipment operating on Natural Refrigerants (near "0" GWP).

True RoHs Compliant Products

RoHS Compliant

True equipment meets RoHS compliance. RoHS stands for "Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances" in electrical and electronic equipment. We reduced the use of major hazardous substances in the production of True products, such as lead, mercury and cadmium by 99%.

Energy efficiency has always been part of our design process.

 

We continue to utilize new technologies to improve our systems to be the most efficient in the industry, without sacrificing the performance that ultimately provides food safety for our customers throughout the world. At True, we are continually searching out environmentally friendly components and processes that will reduce our carbon footprint. This process encapsulates both our approach to manufacturing as well as our approach to the performance of our equipment.

True Sustainability Plants

Sustainability Starts at Home

True's Facilities and People

Energy Conservation

  • Replaced rooftop air conditioners with more efficient Economizer units. The units use fresh air virtually "free" for cooling during the fall, winter and early spring.
  • Solar-powered water heating for office kitchenettes and bathrooms.
  • Reduced office lighting load by 50%

Sustainable Alternatives

  • Installed automated water faucets and hand dryers to regulate water usage and reduce paper towel waste
  • Cafeteria switched from Styrofoam plates and bowls to environmentally-friendly paper products
  • Implemented the Box-on-Demand machine for all part shipments. This machine custom makes boxes to the shape and size of each part sent out, thereby reducing the amount of cardboard used for these shipments. Additionally, any scrap produced by this machine is shredded and re-used as packaging material, reducing our reliance on Styrofoam

Recycling Program

  • Paper, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, cardboard, clear plastic, mixed metals.
  • Cumulative savings of 13,090 tons of material out of landfills since January 2008—the equivalent of removing the annual CO2 emissions of 4,051 homes.

Production Process

Just a few of the improvements True has made in our production processes...

  • Closed loop water systems (conserves water)
  • Powder coating (reduces VOCs)
  • Printing with UV inks (eliminates solvents)
  • Ecomate® foam insulation (0% GWP/ODP)
  • Material recycling
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Low GWP Refrigerant

2018 compared to 2000, True has ...

  • Reduced TRI (Toxic Release Inventory) reported chemical releases by 99.9%.
  • Reduced the release of CO2 by over 500,000 metric tons—the equivalent of removing 106,157 cars off the road last year.
  • Reduced natural gas consumption by 40% per square foot.
  • Recycled 100% of scrap metal.
  • The use of propane reduces the use of high GWP gases.
  • Introduced a new hydrocarbon refrigerant, R290, which greatly reduces our products' environmental impact. The GWP of our products have decreased by over 99%.

True is an Original Energy Star® Partner for Commercial Refrigeration.

Energy Star Partner logo

True Harnesses the Power of the Sun

We have partnered with Missouri’s Brightergy, who has designed and installed solar power systems on 23 True building locations. True has produced 700,000 Kilowatt hours of energy annually. This has resulted in a reduction of our carbon emissions by 495 each year.

Our 23 solar arrays, consisting of a total of 2,070 total solar panels, are seamlessly integrated into the Ameren Missouri power grid.

Environmental Savings from Solar Power

  • Equal to planting 583 acres of U.S. forest each year.
  • Equivalent to recycling 173 tons of waste each year.
  • Enough clean energy to power 59 U.S. homes each year.
  • Same as taking 105 cars off the road each year.
