Reduce

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

  • Nécessaire is committing to improve its manufacturing emissions by changing its body care line of plastic tube and bottle materials from the clean plastics it uses today into bio-resins and/or partial post-consumer waste resins.

  • Nécessaire is committing to improve its transport emissions by extending its shipping eco-system into a dual-location platform in the United States lowering carbon emissions in getting its product to its clients.
