ASOS reveals emissions progress in Carbon Report

Jul 8, 2021

ASOS has released its latest Carbon Report and said that across its business operations, it saw a 21% reduction in emissions per order in its most recent financial year. Longer term, emissions per order were down 45% in FY20 (the 12 months to last August) compared to its 2015 baseline.


And it has committed to setting science-based targets this year and will be reporting on integrated emissions across its full supply chain from 2022.

The e-fashion giant also revealed a 13% reduction in total operational carbon emissions over the reporting period. That’s emissions generated in the running of business, including offices, inbound stock, customer deliveries, and returns. The figure was lower than the per-order reduction due to an increase in the total number of orders.

The cut in its emissions last year was driven by a number of initiatives. These included the move to more localised American fulfilment through its Atlanta fulfilment centre in 2019; switching to renewable energy for three-quarters of its global electricity consumption footprint across all sites; prioritising sea or road freight over air freight for inbound products; and further enhancing recycled plastic content in packaging.
