  1. 1. FOUNDING back before the Swoosh logo and long before the days we were called Nike, there was Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS). It was the company Phil Knight, our founder, and legendary track coach Bill Bowerman created in 1964 to provide athletes with better shoes. Their first year sales totaled around $8,000. It wasn’t until 1971 that BRS introduced the concept of the Greek winged Goddess of victory—Nike. In December 1980 we went public. And the rest is history. EMPLOYEES Nike employs more than 30,000 people globally. Our Nike World Headquarters located near Beaverton, Oregon is home to more than 6,000 employees. REVENUE For the fiscal year ending May 31, 2008, we reported record revenues of $18.6 billion, a $2.3 billion increase over last year’s earnings. NIKE WORLD CAMPUS The original Nike World Headquarters first opened its doors in December 1989. By 2001, the original campus had doubled in size with the addition of six more buildings. The Nike campus consists of 16 main buildings whose names pay tribute to some of our most legendary athletes: John McEnroe, Joan Benoit Samuelson Center, Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson (gym), Mike Schmidt, Nolan Ryan, Lance Armstrong (gym), Mia Hamm, Ken Griffey, Jr., Pete Sampras, Jerry Rice, Tiger Woods Center, The Joe Paterno Child Development Center, Dan Fouts, Alberto Salazar, and Steve Prefontaine Hall. The six-acre lake that rests at the heart of the Nike World Campus is seven feet deep at its deepest point. Home to migratory ducks and geese, this serene lake has been known to surprise a few employees not watching where they’re going. At 450,000 square feet, the Mia Hamm building is the largest on campus. Coming in at a not-so-close second is the Nolan Ryan Building on the original campus (completed in December 1992) at 225,000 square feet. All together, the buildings on campus total slightly more than 2 million square feet or just about 35 football fields. The main entry to Nike World Campus is at One Bowerman Drive. We named the road after legendary Olympic Track and Field coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. In addition to our 177-acre campus near Beaverton, we operate across the world in a variety of facilities. Our first Niketown store opened in 1990 in downtown Portland. This first store set the standard for interactive consumer environments. Averaging over 30,000 square feet of selling space, Niketowns attract millions of consumers every year around the globe. Nike also has Nike Stores, NikeFactory Stores and NikeWomen stores in the US and around the world. Learn more about our US retail locations. Nike has contracted with more than 700 shops around the world and has offices located in 45 countries outside the United States.[22] Most of the factories are located in Asia,
  2. 2. including Indonesia, China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, Philippines,and Malaysia.[23] Nike is hesitant to disclose information about the contract companies it works with. However, due to harsh criticism from some organizations like CorpWatch, Nike has disclosed information about its contract factories in its Corporate Governance Report. Nike IHM, Inc., is based near the World Campus and produces Nike AIR-SOLE cushioning components used in Nike footwear products. It also sells small amounts of various plastic products to other manufacturers. MANUFACTURING As of May 2006, Nike’s three main product engines - footwear, apparel and equipment - used almost 700 contract factories in 52 countries to manufacture all Nike products, employing close to 800,000 workers. It is our mission to make responsible sourcing a business reality that enhances the lives of these workers. Nike, Inc. was founded on a handshake Implicit in that act was the determination that we would build our business with all of our partners based on trust, teamwork, honesty and mutual respect. We expect all of our business partners to operate on the same principles. At the core of the NIKE corporate ethic is the belief that we are a company comprised of many different kinds of people, appreciating individual diversity, and dedicated to equal opportunity for each individual. NIKE designs, manufactures .and markets products for sports and fitness consumers. At every step in that process, we are driven to do not only what is required by law, but what is expected of a leader. We expect our business partners to do the same. NIKE partners with contractors who share our commitment to best practices and continuous improvement in: 1 Management practices that respect the rights of all employees, including the right to free association and collective bargaining 2 Minimizing our impact on the environment 3 Providing a safe and healthy work place 4 Promoting the health and well-being of all employees Contractors must recognize the dignity of each employee, and the right to a work place free of harassment, abuse or corporal punishment. Decisions on hiring, salary, benefits, advancement, termination or retirement must be based solely on the employee’s ability to do the job. There shall be no discrimination based on race, creed, gender, marital or maternity status, religious or political beliefs, age or sexual orientation. Wherever NIKE operates around the globe we are guided by this Code of Conduct and we bind our contractors to these principles. Contractors must post this Code in all major workspaces, translated into the language of the employee, and must train employees on their rights and
  3. 3. obligations as defined by this Code and applicable local laws. While these principles establish the spirit of our partnerships, we also bind our partners to specific standards of conduct. The core standards are set forth below. Forced Labor The contractor does not use forced labor in any form -- prison, indentured, bonded or otherwise. Child Labor The contractor does not employ any person below the age of 18 to produce footwear. The contractor does not employ any person below the age of 16 to produce apparel, accessories or equipment. If at the time Nike production begins, the contractor employs people of the legal working age who are at least 15, that employment may continue, but the contractor will not hire any person going forward who is younger than the Nike or legal age limit, whichever is higher. To further ensure these age standards are complied with, the contractor does not use any form of homework for Nike production. Compensation The contractor provides each employee at least the minimum wage, or the prevailing industry wage, whichever is higher; provides each employee a clear, written accounting for every pay period; and does not deduct from employee pay for disciplinary infractions. Benefits The contractor provides each employee all legally mandated benefits. Hours of Work/Overtime The contractor complies with legally mandated work hours; uses overtime only when each employee is fully compensated according to local law; informs each employee at the time of hiring if mandatory overtime is a condition of employment; and on a regularly scheduled basis provides one day off in seven, and requires no more than 60 hours of work per week on a regularly scheduled basis, or complies with local limits if they are lower. Environment, Safety and Health (ES&H) The contractor has written environmental, safety and health policies and standards, and implements a system to minimize negative impacts on the environment, reduce work-related injury and illness, and promote the general health of employees. Documentation and Inspection The contractor maintains on file all documentation needed to demonstrate compliance with this Code of Conduct and required laws; agrees to make these documents available for Nike or its designated monitor; and agrees to submit to inspections with or without prior notice.
