Nike


About NIKE, Inc.

It started with a handshake between two visionary Oregonians - Bowerman and his University of Oregon runner Phil Knight. They and the people they hired evolved and grew the company that became Nike from a U.S.-based footwear distributor to a global marketer of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment that is unrivaled in the world.










When Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman made this observation many years ago, he was defining how he viewed the endless possibilities for human potential in sports. He set the tone and direction for a young company created in 1972, called Nike, and today those same words inspire a new generation of Nike employees.

Our goal is to carry on his legacy of innovative thinking, whether to develop products that help athletes of every level of ability reach their potential, or to create business opportunities that set Nike apart from the competition and provide value for our shareholders.

They and the people they hired evolved and grew the company that became Nike from a U.S.-based footwear distributor to a global marketer of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment that is unrivaled in the world. 

Along the way, Nike has established a strong Brand Portfolio with several wholly-owned subsidiaries including Cole Haan, Converse Inc., Hurley International LLC, NIKE Golf, and Umbro Ltd.

Our world headquarters is located near Beaverton, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. So while the Pacific Northwest is the birthplace to Nike, today we operate in more than 160 countries around the globe. Through our suppliers, shippers, retailers and other service providers, we directly or indirectly employ nearly one million people.

That includes more than 35,000 Nike employees across six continents, each of whom make their own contribution to fulfill our mission statement: to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete* in the world.





 

Our products are a load of rubbish:

(8 Plastic Bottles)
 

Each Nike 2010 World Championship Football jersey is made entirely from recycled polyester. That's up to eight recycled plastic bottles per jersey. In total, that diverted nearly 13 million plastic bottles from landfills. Yes, you read right. 13 million. Plastic. Bottles.




 

One shoe does good, the other shoe kicks ass:

(Nike Free TR Fit)
 

The Free TR Fit is designed with a lower environmental impact using environmentally preferred rubber, water-based cementing and recycled polyester. That means every step in the multi-directional flex groove outsole replicates the foot's natural movement and helps women get more out of their workout without leaving a huge environmental footprint. Everyone's a winner.
 

Sharing an idea is
the idea:

(Technology Exchange)
 

We believe in saving the planet, so in partnership with the non-profit Creative Commons, we created the GreenXchange. Through it we offer patents to license, including our environmentally preferred rubber, to other footwear companies who can use the technology to lower their environmental footprint.





We don't hug trees, we save them:

(A Better Shoebox)
 

A new lighter, stronger shoebox comes into play in 2011. Using 23% less material in the box saves the equivalent of 200,000 trees annually. And like all of our shoeboxes since 1995, it's made with 100% recycled cardboard. Trees should be hugging us.
