Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We will reduce upstream shipping emissions from our factory in Peru.

How We'll Reduce It

We will shift more of our shipping from air shipment to ocean shipment. In 2019, we did 10% ocean shipping; 2020 was 50%. For 2021, our goal is 80%.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce downstream shipping emissions fom our distribution center.

How We'll Reduce It

We will implement shipping to retail locations so as to reduce total downstream shipping mileage by approximately 20%.

Other Sustainability Notes

Nisolo is a B Corporation and Climate Neutral Certified brand, and our vision is to push fashion in a more sustainable direction that values the planet and producers within the industry just as much as end consumers. Every Nisolo purchase supports living wages and the offsetting of 100% of our carbon emissions across our entire supply chain by protecting trees from deforestation in the Amazon Basin. The fashion industry is responsible for 8% of annual greenhouse gas emissions! Rather than further contributing to climate change, we believe it's our responsibility as a brand, and greater industry, to do our part in solving the climate crisis. Since early 2018, we have offset the carbon emissions of everything we have produced by investing in forest conservation in the Cordillera Azul of the Peruvian Amazon. Through Climate Neutral, we now have visibility into our entire carbon footprint, and have offset the emissions across all of our operations. This means that, to date, our customers have enabled us to protect 594,090 trees covering an area of 111,406,472 square feet (that's the same size as 869 soccer fields) from deforestation in the Amazon Basin and offset 5,750 metric tons of CO2. This is the equivalent of taking 1,242 cars off the road for a year. Our conservation project currently supports 665 jobs, 30% of which are held by women.
