Domino's Pizza today announced that it joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry that provides a framework to assess the environmental and energy efficiency of goods movement supply chains.

Domino's Pizza will contribute to the partnership's savings of 1.5 billion gallons of fuel, $3.6 billion in fuel costs, 14.7 MMT 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 Transport Partnership, Domino's Supply Chain division demonstrates its strong 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, American Trucking Associations and Business for Social Responsibility, the program was launched in 2004. Partners rely upon SmartWay tools and approaches to track and reduce emissions and fuel use from goods movement.

The effort currently has more than 3,000 partners. For information about the SmartWay Transport Partnership visit epa.gov/smartway.
