Asos reduces per order emissions by 21%

The reduction follows the group’s successful implementation of its carbon 2020 strategy introduced in January 2020

Asos has revealed that it has cut operational carbon emissions per order by 21% year-on-year for FY20.

The reduction follows the group’s successful implementation of its carbon 2020 strategy introduced in January 2020.

FY20’s progress now means that the reduction in emissions per order at the online fashion retailer stands at 45% since 2015.

In a wider report, the group claimed that it achieved a 13% year-on-year reduction in total operational carbon emissions during the period, representing a lower rate than the per order figures as the company continued to expand during FY20.

Nick Beighton, CEO at Asos, said: “We’re incredibly proud of what our teams have achieved against a very difficult backdrop. 

“A 21% year-on-year reduction in operational carbon emissions per order is a significant achievement that shows our efforts to decouple our growth from our carbon footprint are having an impact.” 

He added that the group has “more to do in this area” and will be “sharing more on this very soon”.

The e-commerce retailer has previously pledged to reach net zero carbon emissions in its entire supply chain by 2040 in collaboration with the British Retail Consortium’s climate action roadmap.
