Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Coalition; this can be achieved by positive chemistry (use of environmentally preferred chemistries), rejection of toxins, chemical management and awareness training, material traceability and disclosure advancements. Commitments have been made for the phase-out of per fl uorinated chemicals and the use of alternatives for these fi nishes. The assessment of the geographic impact of water and the use of waterless technologies have helped to save many industries. Waste reduction at manufacturing, recycling of shoebox waste, reduction in the weight of packaging materials and the recycling, reuse and repurposing of waste are some of the methods for addressing the problem of waste. Physical inactivity has led to many problems in health and the forum 'Designed to Move' will take care of this problem (Nike Inc 2012e ). Finally, the organization works with the underlying principle of building sus- tainability into the core of the business model, the operations and culture where innovation is conceived, shared and commercially applicable. The commitment requires an eye for sustainability in every fi eld, with constant attention to the measurement and evaluation of the sustainable measures in order to fi nd the right direction for growth and progress. This will bring about all-around development, market transformation and consumerism. Nike has done immense work to enrich our living space by working on sustainability. The company has partnered with many projects and legislations in this fi eld and has worked in union with many other leaders in the industry. The formulation and execution of the tools for Higg Index has been used by this organization and the basis of all such work has been taken from Nike Inc. Many of the products manufactured by Nike have proven to be sustainable and there are many industries who will follow this leader in favor of sustainability. 54 S. Radhakrishnan

    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.
