Domino’s Pizza joins US EPA SmartWay

Domino’s Pizza has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry.

Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.

The pizza franchise network will contribute to the partnership’s savings of 1.5 billion gallons of fuel, $3.6 billion in fuel costs, 14.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), 215,000 tons of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and 8,000 tons of particulate matter. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is an air pollutant that contributes to smog. By joining SmartWay, Domino’s Supply Chain division demonstrates its environmental leadership and corporate responsibility.

“We are proud to participate with the EPA in support of working toward more environmentally efficient freight shipments,” said Mary Long, Domino’s vice-president of logistics and network planning. “It provides a great forum to share best practices and see what other SmartWay partners are doing to reduce fuel consumption.”

Developed jointly in early 2003 by EPA and charter partners represented by industry stakeholders, environmental groups, the American Trucking Associations, and Business for Social Responsibility, this program was launched in 2004. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement.

The partnership currently has more than 3,000 partners. For more information, visit
