Nike collaborates on materials to combat climate change

As part of Nike’s strategic focus to reduce its environmental footprint and enable business growth, the US-based sportswear company recently announced a collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Climate CoLab to bring innovative materials to the forefront of the climate conversation. Nike also plans to reach 100 per cent renewable energy in the facilities it owns and operates by 2025.

According to the MIT Climate CoLab, this collaboration with Nike will help to kick-start the conversation around materials by galvanising the global community to start to tackle this immense challenge. The ‘MIT Climate CoLab Materials Challenge’ is now looking for revolutionary new ideas on how to engage industries, designers and consumers in valuing, demanding and adopting low-impact fabrics and textiles.
