The new world order, in which company interests do not conflict with social interests, and social and environmental issues become the responsibility of companies, has revealed the concept of sustainability. In this context, according to the statements of the European Parliament, sustainability is also important for the textile sector, which is one of the most environmentally harmful sectors according to the amount of production and waste. On the other hand, the textile industry has a complex supply chain in which many distant chain members try to act together under globalization and cost constraints. This situation makes the sustainability studies of the textile sector difficult. However, businesses that create a sustainable supply chain structure and continuously improve this structure are expected to create a competitive advantage. In this study, the nearshore supplier strategy is adopted to improve environmental sustainability. Therefore, old inbound transpostation has calculated to understand reduction of CO2 emissions. Used calculation methods are placed in EN 16258. With this new sustainable idea, the textile company used %30 nearshore suppliers are called FM (Full Merchandised) at first two years. The reduction of CO2 emissons rate for inbound transportation became 669 t CO2 e at the end of 2022. The total emission reduction during the next 10-years period is 20122 tons CO2 e for transportation. It is obvious that this research will be a sustainability study that will create value in terms of the inbound supply process.
