03 Reduce

Ministry of Supply is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

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

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%.
