US Foodservice Walks their Talk

Ei sponsor, US Foodservice, continues its strides in “walking the talk” through their participation in the Green Portfolio program. In 2009, US Foodservice’s Atlanta region converted its entire delivery fleet to biodiesel. Go to the December 01, 2009 post on the ZWZ Blog for additional details.

The article on the Environmental Defense Fund site lists impressive 2009 and 2010 stats against a 2007 baseline for US Foodservices’ actions in fleet management, facility efficiencies among other areas.

Here is the beginning of the article:

U.S. Foodservice, one of America’s premier foodservice distributors, was one of the first in the KKR portfolio to join the Green Portfolio Program in 2008, helping to design and pilot the framework.

U.S. Foodservice has more than 25,000 employees in over 60 locations nationwide and operates one of the largest private trucking fleets in the country.

The company strives to reduce the environmental impact of its operations by continually investing in infrastructure, technology and protocols that help eliminate vehicle emissions and increase energy efficiency at its distribution centers.
