Nike announced in its annual Sustainable Business Report that it is using recycled waste materials from its own manufacturing efforts in 71 percent of its products, including footwear and apparel.
Hannah Jones, Nike’s chief sustainability officer, said in a statement:
We’ve set a moonshot challenge to double our business with half the impact. It’s a bold ambition that’s going to take much more than incremental efficiency—it’s going to take innovation on a scale we’ve never seen before. It’s a challenge we are setting for ourselves, our collaborators and our partners as we move toward a circular economy future.
