We advocate for the protection and respect of workers worldwide. It’s the right thing to do and it makes our business more resilient and more innovative.
We have been working to improve labor conditions in our supply chains for more than 20 years. Our purpose includes driving positive change for workers in Nike contract factories and across the industry.
More than one million people work in over 500 contract factories in our supply chain. We work with suppliers that share our commitment to protect people and the planet and are focused on fostering a culture of health and safety, sharing productivity gains and advancing respect for human rights.
We’ve learned that when workers share their views and opinions, collaboration and productivity increase, stress decreases and worker compensation goes up. That’s why workers are at the center of our sustainable manufacturing strategy. A few examples of our work are highlighted below.
We set high environmental standards for the factories we work with and help them reach and exceed those marks. Our suppliers are working hard to minimize their environmental footprint through low-carbon manufacturing, waste reduction and water efficiency.
We’ve set ambitious targets to drive continuous improvement in our manufacturing supply chain to ensure factory workers share in productivity gains, to reduce our environmental impact and to increase the wellbeing or every worker who makes Nike product.
