Nike Plans To Be Carbon Neutral By 2011
Nike released its fiscal 2005 and 2006 Corporate Responsibility Report today. The company says it has exceeded its reduction targets for CO2 emissions over the last two years through the World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Savers program.
The company also says it eliminated fluorinated gases across all Nike brand products following 14 years of research and development in the company’s Nike Air cushioning system.
Among its future targets, Nike says it will make all Nike brand facilities, retail and business travel climate neutral by 2011. The company also says it will design all Nike brand footwear to meet baseline targets by 2011 for waste reduction in product design and packaging, elimination of volatile organic compounds and increased use of environmentally preferred materials.
