Nike pledges to cut CO2 footprint and use 100% renewable energy by 2025

Nike, world’s leading brand of sports shoes and apparel, has pledged to cut its CO2 footprint, using 100 percent renewable energy by 2025.

Nowadays it uses 80 percent renewable energy. The process of sourcing materials and manufacturing accounts for 80 percent of the brand’s total carbon footprint.

By focusing on the materials, the US-based retailer has promised to improve its sustainability credentials and uses its products.

Noel Kinder, Chief Sustainability Officer said, “Nike has inked a pledge with Renewable Energy Buyers’ Alliance to lower its carbon emissions by 30 percent and use 100 percent renewable energy by 2025.”

It has to be mentioned that Nike is amongst the world’s top recyclers of polyester.  And it took a significant stride forward last year when it introduced a new shoe line consisting of 90 percent recyclable materials.

Besides it uses at least some reusable material in 70 percent of its goods and is geared to go even further.

Meanwhile, Nike’s pledge to use 100 percent renewable energy by 2025 only relates to its own offices, shops, as well as factories, persuading manufacturing partners to do so could help the firm reduce its overall emissions.

With that, plenty of other Vietnam-based firms will benefit.

By concluding COP26, Noel Kinder said, “Nike is also focused on using the weight it has in the manufacturing space to influence its partners.”
