Jimbo’s…Naturally! Receives Silver from EPA’s GreenChill Partnership

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – January 13th, 2015 – For a second year, the Jimbo’s…Naturally! 28,000 sq. ft. downtown San Diego Westfield Horton Plaza store earned the prestigious EPA GreenChill Silver Award.

With this achievement the store continues to cut its refrigeration emissions by 65%. Reducing refrigerant emissions is a significant step to helping our environment. GreenChill certified stores only use refrigerants that do not harm the earth’s ozone layer. Refrigerants have the potential to harm the ozone layer and contain greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change.

“Jimbo’s…Naturally! continued commitment to achieve GreenChill’s certification standards for its Horton Plaza store proves that the company is serious about its role in protecting the ozone layer and preventing climate change,” said Tom Land, Manager of EPA’s GreenChill Partnership. “It is important that companies understand that helping the environment has become the business model of the future.”

It is Jim “Jimbo” Someck’s passion for the environment that encouraged Jimbo to partner with the EPA. “GreenChill Certification is part of an overall commitment by Jimbo’s…Naturally! to be a responsible community member and steward to the environment. This continued achievement demonstrates our ongoing effort to provide our customers with more than just a great place to shop. We want our customers to be proud of the fact that we continue to make great strides to protect the environment,” said Jimbo.
