ICCEE aimed at bridging inefficiencies in the cold supply chain stages, increasing the energy efficiency and the energy culture of food and beverage manufacturing industries, warehouses, cold storage and logistic operators.
The project enhanced the awareness on energy efficiency and sustainable supply chain initiatives at every organisational level, from top management to operational staff. Led by a group of industry, energy and IT experts -it developed a series of interrelated activities, including a tailor-made tool for cold supply chains and training courses.
This event, in 2 parts, will allow participants to discover the ICCEE approach and results, and in a second part, to hear from high-level speakers in 2 debates: on the factors preventing and facilitating the implementation of energy efficiency measures for companies, and on policy solutions.
