The Marketplace doubles down on sustainability, cutting-edge tech at new store

The Marketplace, Robinsons Retail’s premium food retail banner, recently opened its newest store on July 4, 2024 at Opus in Bridgetowne, Quezon City.

Setting a milestone in sustainable retail, the new store has fully integrated an innovative refrigeration system called Extreme Transcritical Efficiency (ETE) System that replaces harmful hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants with carbon dioxide, a naturally occurring, nonflammable, and nontoxic gas. Designed to minimize the effects of heat entrapment, the ETE system is also optimized to operate in warm, tropical climates resulting to substantial energy savings and lower operational costs.

Carbon dioxide‘s significantly lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) of one (1) and its Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero (0), compared to traditional HFC and CFC refrigerants that have GWPs ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 and ODPs ranging from 0.01 to 1.0, allow for a reduction in ecological footprint. The ETE system is also optimized to operate efficiently in warm, tropical climates due to its design that minimize the effects of heat entrapment resulting to substantial energy savings and lower operational costs.

By adopting cutting-edge, sustainable technology, The Marketplace not only aligns with global efforts in climate action but reaffirms its commitment to meeting consumer demand for sustainable business practices while delivering high-quality products and services.

Present at the opening were Linkage Foods Venture Corporation COO Justin Lim, Dizon Group President and CEO Catherine Dizon-Posas, Philippine Wine Merchants President and CEO Ralph Lim Joseph, Arancia and Zucca President and CEO Margarita Forés, Robinsons Land EVP and GM Faraday Go, Universal Robina Corporation President and CEO Irwin Lee, Unilever Philippines Chairman and CEO Fredy Ong, Robinsons Retail Independent Director Rudy Ang, SC Johnson Philippines Director and Country Manager Marissa De Ungria, and Caper Group Founder and Managing Director Edgar Allan Caper.
