PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
It’s our duty to do our part to protect our planet for the athletes of today and tomorrow. And Carissa Moore believes that all of us have a role to play. As a pro surfer, her field of play is dependent on everyone doing their part in protecting it.

A LIFE ON THE OCEAN

Carissa started surfing when she was five. Back then, her father asked her to pick up trash every time she surfed. For both of them, it was their way of protecting the future of the playground that has given them so much. Carissa’s hope is that her ocean, and all oceans, will continue to offer kids like her a place to experience nature and sport.

THE MATERIALS WE USE MATTER

60 percent of our environmental impact comes from the materials that go into our product, so we source materials sustainably and responsibly by looking at how materials are grown, harvested and processed. We work with our materials suppliers to improve their sustainability practices in materials manufacturing, dyeing and finishing.

HALVING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

At Nike, we exist to serve athletes – and if you have a body, you are an athlete. We must protect our planet to maintain an environment where all athletes can train, live and thrive because if you can’t run outside because of pollution, flooding or fire, or don’t have clean water to drink, then you don’t have sport. We focus on reducing our carbon footprint, using water more efficiently, innovating better chemistry and minimizing waste.

Designing, Creating and Delivering Sustainable Products

For more than a generation, we’ve been innovating to improve the sustainability of our products to serve athletes* everywhere.

Working With Suppliers to Reduce their Impact

Nike engages and supports suppliers through environmental minimum programs to improve performance and risk management capabilities. These programs help our suppliers understand their biggest impact areas, and develop and implement sustainability practices to reduce their impact.

I WANT MY KIDS TO BE ABLE TO WALK THESE SAME BEACHES SOMEDAY. TO HIKE THE SAME TRAILS AND SWIM THE SAME REEFS. TO SURF THE SAME BREAKS.
