Nike hops onto the bandwagon of Climate Change by signing UN Fashion Charter


Nike has joined forces with other global brands, retailers and suppliers by signing the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, a commitment under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

They are committed to helping achieve the industry’s most aggressive climate targets by targeting a 30 per cent reduction in aggregate greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and a vision to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

“Issues as big and complex as climate change call for us to collaborate across our industry and beyond. 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,” said Noel Kinder, Nike’s Chief Sustainability Officer in a statement.

Industry giants like Adidas, PVH Corp, Kering Group, Gap Inc., H&M Group, Inditex, and VF Corp. have also become a part of the UN Fashion Charter, which was first launched at the UN international climate negotiations, held in Poland in December 2018.

Being a member of the United Nations Global Compact prior to this, Nike has been dedicated to working alongside a cross-sector coalition dedicated to advancing sustainable development. Its partnership with RE100 has also strengthened its stance on driving broader change by committing to source 100 per cent renewable energy.
