Ministry of Supply achieved Climate Neutral Certification as part of 's certification process. 's measurement, offsetting and reduction plans fully account for Ministry of Supply's 2021 emissions

01 Measure

Ministry of Supply measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

Emissions from energy used in buildings, fleets, and equipment.

1 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

2 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

Emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, air travel, and other activities in the supply chain.

2,120 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

The sum of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

2,122 tCO2e

02 Offset

Ministry of Supply invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Ministry of Supply to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to continue reducing our virgin polyester consumption by transitioning more of our products to use our flagship fabric, Apollo, which is made from 66% recycle polyester.

How We'll Reduce It

We have set to have at least 50% of our product line be made of 50% or more recycled content by new styles launched.

02

What We’re Reducing

We seek to reduce our emissions associated with inbound freight, to 25%

How We'll Reduce It

We will reduce air freight which has 9x higher emissions than sea freight, and have moved our warehouse to the West Coat to reduce backwards shipping of product and longer lead times. Air Freight (2020) was 29%, (2021) was 27%.

In Progress Reductions

01

100%

What We’re Reducing

Air Freight Shipments to Sea Freight. We've isolated this as one of our biggest opportunities where air freight was contributed 3.4KgCO2e per unit compared to 0.4 via sea.

How We'll Reduce It

Moving warehouses from US North East Coast to port of entry in LA, this will reduce backwards shipping, and cut lead times by 2 weeks, making sea-shipping more similar to air freight in terms of time to product launch.

02

2%

What We’re Reducing

Reduction in Virgin Polyester in products from 36% to 50% of all new products produced. This is our most carbon-intensive material.

How We'll Reduce It

We are redeveloping all of our polyester fabrics to contain more than 50% recycled material content. Based on production in Taiwan, this reduces emissions by over 50%.

03

72%

What We’re Reducing

Overall shipping emissions

How We'll Reduce It

Increase use of sea-freight

04

22%

What We’re Reducing

Emissions from fabric production

How We'll Reduce It

By using solar power in fabric manufacturing
