riduzione delle fonti approvvigionamento / riduzione dello spessore
Explanation:
penso che
source = source of supply
down-gauging = riduzione di spessore

Downgauging helps food processors use less plastic material, a key savings at a time when the rising price of oil has sent polymer costs soaring.
