REASEARCH AND CASE STUDIES The research and case studies below explore Nike’s approach to sustainable innovation and equitable manufacturing. Case studies published by Harvard Business School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business trace Nike’s journey as one of the first companies faced with issues in its global supply chain to one that now actively pursues sustainable innovation as part of the company’s long-term growth. Research published by Greg Distelhorst, Jens Hainmueller and Richard M.

Nike: Sustainability and Labor Practices 1998- 2013 (Stanford Graduate School of Business) Does Lean Improve Labor Standards Management and Social Performance in the Nike Supply Chain FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Nike has come a long way since it was founded in 1972 on a handshake between an athlete (Phil Knight) and a track coach (Bill Bowerman). Since the early years we have applied many learnings in developing and operating a complex global supply chain. And we’re proud of the important role we can play in helping create an environment of collaboration and transparency. We now harness the power of innovation to create opportunities and lead by example in setting sustainability and social goals. While we’ve made significant progress and continue to push ourselves and our industry to do better, we know that some questions still arise about how we work. IS NIKE A RESPONSIBLE COMPANY? Yes. And we’re continuously working to do better. We constantly evaluate the impact of our business and set public targets for improvements. We innovate throughout our entire supply chain and promote responsibility toward workers, the community and the planet. We know that no single organization can solve the social and environmental challenges we all face, which is why we are committed to industry collaboration, transparency and innovation to help foster a better world.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
