Guidance on energy efficient kitchen equipment published in Finnish
INNOCAT partner Motiva has published new guidance to help guide procurement of commercial kitchen equipment. The purpose of the professional kitchen guide is to provide information on how to choose energy efficient and environmental friendly professional kitchen equipment.
The Guide includes environmental criteria for most common dishwasher and refrigeration device types. According to Motiva, dishwashing is responsible about 80% of the water used in the kitchen and about 40% of electricity consumption, so ensuring that caterers purchase the most efficient equipment possible can have a significant impact on the water and carbon footprint of food preparation.
Motiva aims to continuously update the Guide, adding information about more efficient models as they appear on the market.
