2 2-2 Case Study – Yourway Subs environment”[Joh15]. Yourway Subs contributes to pollution by having a “never out of an item” policy. The company purchases their food related products from large producers and distributors who are often located long distance from stores. This increases the amount of pollutants being transmitted to the air. Another factor to consider when transporting produce and deli foods, in order to stay fresh, these items need to be shipped in refrigeration trucks. “A conventional diesel-powered transport refrigeration unit can emit up to six times as much NOx and up to 29 times as much particulate matter as a modern diesel HGV engine”[Aut15]. In order for the “Green Team” to take the Pilot Program to the next level and reach their goal of zero waste, they need to assess their current goals so that they can effectively reduce the chains negative impact on the planet without having a negative impact of themselves. Issues Yourway Subs Green Team has identified four initiatives that are meant to reduce the amount of pollution within the company as possible. Procure produce locally, bake bread on site, reduce the miles that inbound products were shipped and collaborate with suppliers to reduce packaging and transport miles. In order for the company to overcome the obstacles of these initiatives being successful, the Green Team must evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. To procure local produce, Yourway Subs may want to partner with a local garden or farmer. Procuring vegetables locally will allow the franchise owners to save on the cost of produce when transport is not added into the equation. It would also help the local economy.

It would be hard to insure repeat business when they do not carry what the customer requests.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
