Sustainability

Environmental & Social considerations

Khmer Cold Chain is committed to developing Cambodian cold chain infrastructure and stimulating economic growth, improving supply chains and building market partnerships between developing countries and global markets. We are using the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a global blueprint for achieving a more sustainable future.
