Read on to learn more about our initiatives and technologies.
Liebherr’s ActiveGreen® Initiative
Purchasing a Liebherr gives you peace of mind knowing that you are supporting a company that is committed to finding greener ways to produce quality, sustainable products. Liebherr has been a global trailblazer in green, responsible manufacturing practices for decades – long before it became industry-wide best practice. Committed to offering refrigeration solutions that help consumers conserve energy and improve the quality of our environment without compromising performance, Liebherr’s ActiveGreen® initiative is reflected in every aspect of their design and manufacturing processes. Heat generated during our manufacturing processes is recycled as heating energy for our offices and production sites. We are using 100% recyclable packaging as well as decreasing the use of chemicals and solvents. In 1993, Liebherr became the first manufacturer world-wide to make its entire line-up of refrigerators HFC-free.
What are HFCs?
HFCs are man-made chemical compounds used in refrigeration and air-conditioning. As a greenhouse gas, HFCs cause damage to our ozone layer. In fact, the effects of HFC emission are believed to be over a hundred times more devastating than carbon dioxide!
The Science Of Sustainable Design – BioFresh
Liebherr is far advanced in the sciences that go into making premium modern refrigerators. Think about the many times you’ve bought fresh vegetables, dairy and cheese, meats and fish only to be disappointed in how quickly they wilt or sour. Meat you paid dearly for typically gets that droopy, browning look in just one day in conventional refrigerators. Vegetables with a fresh, crisp taste tend to age and wilt even faster. But with Liebherr’s patented BioFresh technology, these same foods don’t just look fresh for longer, but they actually retain their valued healthy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals for far longer.
How does BioFresh work?
A low temperature alone isn’t enough to preserve freshness. A specially patented system of precision electronics, mechanical ingenuity, and environmental controls keeps food fresher, longer. The balancing act required for consistent conditions is regulated at a temperature just slightly above 0ºC, far below conventional refrigerator compartment temperatures. Precision electronic controls ensure that your food won’t accidentally freeze. Independent studies confirm that there is an increase in the vitamin C content of many types of foods when stored in our patented BioFresh safe. The natural loss of moisture in fruits and vegetables is significantly reduced as well.

DuoCooling Is One Cool Quality
Having two refrigeration systems – one for the refrigerator and one for the freezer – is an advantage with immeasurable benefits. Each system is set for optimal performance at the right conditions needed for the two distinguished environments. Without it, most systems will be out of balance. But that concern is eliminated with our DuoCooling technology. With two independently controlled cooling circuits, DuoCooling controls the temperature in fridge-freezers with precision. The shelf life of both fresh and frozen foods is lengthened. Flavours and food texture are preserved as there is no transfer of unwanted air, moisture, or food aroma between the two compartments.
In short, Liebherr takes your food shopping, cold storage, and preservation to a whole new level. A Liebherr refrigerator is a valuable tool that allows you and your family to eat healthier, shop less, and save money due to reduced wastage.
