How we’re reducing our emissions

In November 2021, we committed to setting a Science Based Target, guided by the SBTi.

The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and is one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments. They help companies to set science based targets, which involve seeing how much and how quickly businesses need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. This then leads them on a path towards decarbonisation.

Thanks to this, we now have a clear action plan for reducing our emissions, helping us keep our promise to our planet. All our targets have been approved by the SBTi, and we’ll be announcing what they are very soon.

For info on where we’re at right now, take a look at Our Impact.

And check out what we’re doing with Textiles 2030, which is another part of our journey to reduce emissions.

Reducing the impact of our supply chain

We work closely with our community of trusted suppliers across the world, take a look at our factory list here. Thanks to our membership with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), we can collect energy, waste and water data from most of our partners. This gives us a great insight into the environmental impact of where we source our products from.

Having this data means we know how much energy is used in creating our products and which fuels are used. Of course, we know that factory energy contributes a lot to our carbon footprint. So, we’re planning to use this info and work with suppliers and other brands to help decarbonise the supply chain.

We also stand by the UN Fashion Charter’s goal to eliminate coal from the fashion supply chain.

Reducing the impact of our distribution

Our family of employees, athletes and followers is now over 10 million strong, with a total social media following of over 18 million and customers in over 190 countries across our 14 online stores.

We love how big our community has grown. But this does mean that our products need to travel a lot of distance to get to each and every one of you. This is an area where we’ve made some great improvements. Not just to give you a better service, but also to dramatically reduce the carbon impact of all this shipping.

As we began to grow worldwide over the last 10 years, it meant we had to start flying products from Europe, which increased the environmental impact of our shipping.

However, in 2021 we opened up new distribution centres in North America, Canada and Australia. This means we can ship products a lot closer to wherever you are in the world, and then deliver your order to your door using more carbon efficient methods, such as vans or cargo bikes.

Our sourcing team works closely with our inbound supply chain partners to pick the most appropriate routes and transportation methods to get products to the DCs. And in FY22, we’ve managed to reduce our freight emissions by over 50% through reducing our use of air freight.
