Affordable and Clean Energy

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

Renewable energy solutions are becoming cheaper, more reliable and more efficient every day. Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet, which is why we have to change the way we produce and consume energy. Implementing these new energy solutions as fast as possible is essential to counter climate change, one of the biggest threats to our own survival.

Nike

NIKE: Renewable Energy

To tackle climate change, Nike are focused on scaling renewable energy across their value chain as well as investing in lower-carbon materials and building resilience to climate uncertainty by reducing costs, innovating new operating models, and strengthening their supply chain.

In 2015, Nike joined RE100, a coalition of businesses that have pledged to source 100% renewable energy in their operations. As a Fortune 100 company, they have an opportunity to drive increased renewable energy production and access, globally.

In North America, they are now powering their owned or operated facilities with 100% renewable energy. Through a partnership with Iberdrola they will begin sourcing 100% renewable energy in Europe in 2020. Nike also powers our European Logistics Campus (ELC) in Laakdal, Belgium, with 100% renewable energy through five sources (onsite wind, solar, geothermal, and locally produced biomass and hydro). More than 30% of the electricity consumed at their China Logistics Center in Taicang, China, is generated through rooftop solar.
