MAKING PRODUCT RESPONSIBLY
How we make our products is as important as what we make. We work with contract factories and other industry partners who share our commitment to making products responsibly and sustainably.

OUR COMMITMENT TO WORKER ENGAGEMENT & WELLBEING

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.

OUR COMMITMENT TO WORKER ENGAGEMENT & WELLBEING
INVESTING IN SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING

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.

OUR 2020 TARGETS

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.
