Roundy’s Inc., a leading grocer in the Midwest, announced that it is joining the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA's) GreenChill program, a partnership between the EPA and food retailers to reduce emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

The partnership also publishes service-related materials, the following of which is excerpted from those files.
