Nike Joins UN Climate Change Initiative


BEAVERTON, Ore.—Nike signs on to the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action. The charter is an agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The charter says its vision is to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and works to determine ways the apparel and textile industries can move toward a “holistic commitment to climate action,” according to a statement on the website.

“Issues as big and complex as climate change call for us to collaborate across our industry and beyond,” contends Noel Kinder, Nike’s chief sustainability officer. “That’s why we’re committed to doing just that in partnership with UN Climate Change – teaming up with peers and partners across sectors to do what’s right for our planet and for the future of sport.”

In addition to joining the charter, Nike says it is committing to other endeavors related to sustainable development. The company participates in coalitions that work towards 100 percent renewable energy and more recently, released an open-source circular design to help designers create sustainable goods.
