Recently, the SUBWAY® chain was recognized by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the NYC department of Health for achieving the National Salt Reduction Initiative's sodium targets for 2012 and its commitment to achieving the goals for 2014. So far the sodium content of SUBWAY® Fresh Fit Sandwiches has been reduced by 28% and by 25% across the entire menu.
The SUBWAY® chain's continued efforts to reduce its environmental footprint through sustainable operations resulted in packaging improvements, distribution efficiencies, increased energy and water conservation, as well as waste reduction. Additional SUBWAY® Eco Restaurants opened in 2012, some built entirely out of recycled materials, and all incorporating energy efficient equipment and controls.
