People, profit, planet: cool chain sustainability

Nicola Caristo, director general, Cool Chain Association and Stavros Evangelakakis, chairman, Cool Chain Association, will host sessions in Los Angeles

The Cool Chain Association (CCA) is to hold its third Americas Conference, Sustainability Matters, in Los Angeles on 18-20 November.

The event will bring together members of the entire supply chain, including shippers, to share insights into the challenges facing temperature-controlled logistics. The focus will be a “people, profit, planet” business model for a sustainable cool chain future, CCA said.

Present at the event will be representatives from the Produce Marketing Association and California-based berry shipper Driscoll’s, as well as speakers from Air France KLM, Cargolux and Able Freight to name a few.

Topics for discussion will include the shipper’s perspective, innovation, data sharing and transparency, standards and certification, challenging products, and packaging.

“The business landscape is rapidly changing, with technology bringing new opportunities, and evolving consumer and customer demands,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, Cool Chain Association chairman and Cargolux global product manager pharma and perishable.

“At the same time, there is a pressing need for us to address sustainability issues, from better caring for our environment, to ensuring a responsible and healthy future for our industry, and for the people who rely on it from first, to final mile.

“Our cool chain industry must ensure product integrity, learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, digitalise and share data to embrace the ‘people, profit, planet’ framework and drive sustainable development for both pharma and perishables.”
