  • This is an overview of sustainability integration at Nike, including some of the programs I was involved in and led. <br />
  • I divided up sustainability integration into building the vision (strategy and business case), innovation integration (internal consulting), and creating the culture (employee communications and training). First and foremost, I tried to connect sustainability to the core business by comparing it to Nike&#x2019;s roots as an innovative, entrepreneurial company. <br />
  • Brief overview of the history behind corporate responsibility at Nike to show that the foundation was already laid to do execute the sustainability innovation integration work. <br />
  • This sustainability education program was instrumental to getting sustainability into the business beyond the work being done by full time CR people. When I was head of Europe footwear product integrity, I was a captain representing the Europe footwear division, and started a project team (aka &#x201C;The Brady Bunch&#x201D;). <br />
  • This is an overview of the strategic plan I designed when I became a Senior Manager in Nike CR. The diagram on the left visually shows that everything begins with the vision, innovation internal consulting should reach only targeted divisions in order to maximize the efficiency of the programs, and building the culture for sustainability within the entire company is the foundation of what we&#x2019;re trying to do. <br />
  • The business case was divided into three main benefits, which are listed above. We developed an internal website that covered the CEMP students&#x2019; findings/recommendations. I have more details about the results if you&#x2019;re interested. <br />
  • Two of the targeted divisions for the innovations internal consulting are listed above, in addition to the major initiatives launched. <br />
  • In order to facilitate a culture of innovation, enhance networking, and sharing of best practices, an early version of interact was launched. <br />
  • This was a global employee communications campaign around corporate responsibility that I managed. We branded it &#x201C;kyosei: living and working together in favor of the future&#x201D; to give it a more international feel to mitigate the complaints that Nike seems to be very US-centric in its internal communications. <br />
  • Examples of the kyosei campaign elements: speaker events (Bill McDonough is standing next to Nike&#x2019;s CEO, Mark Parker, who gave me budget for this campaign), promotional items (t-shirts were given to receptionists, fortune cookies were placed on everyone&#x2019;s desk across the globe with a CR-themed message inside and the URL to our intranet site), and more (signage at world headquarters, posters in offices around the globe, CR FAQ downloadable to PDAs at the global leadership summit of the top 500 employees at Nike). <br />
  • thank you daniel for having us; exciting speaking with all of you <br /> 100 degrees in portland: climate <br /> daniel: something different from the great past a-ko webcasts, and across different sectors <br /> title: climate stakeholder engagement: it&#x2019;s all about change agents <br /> my background (nike global, cr, founded FMYI, what is FMYI) <br />
  • introduce fellow panelists <br /> honored to have michael, dave, and patrick join me today <br /> Michael Armstrong &#x2013; Deputy Director, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, City of PortlandDave Newman &#x2013; Former Head Global Climate & Energy, NikePatrick Nye &#x2013; Vice President, Climate Business Group, Bonneville Environmental Foundation <br /> portland case study in climate stakeholder engagement <br /> my piece: ideas for approach and tools <br />
  • we all operate at such a high level, thinking on the organization level <br /> to effect change, need to think about our roles as change agents <br /> and talking to people we want to engage and view them as change agents <br />
  • seminal fast company article from 1997 - revised now for ideas, not just job function <br /> economy 2.0 and our role as climate change agents <br /> each idea we have should be viewed as our own startup <br />
  • what change do we want to bring about? <br /> climate innovation is what will move us forward to economy 2.0 <br /> this is what&#x2019;s compelling about climate change work <br />
  • innovation is a murky term <br /> my definition is the intersection of sustainability/climate, collaboration, and technology <br />
  • sustainability/climate: long term innovation (not just a sole focus on the financial bottom line, that will lead to short term innovation instead of a strategy that includes people and planet) <br /> techniques for climate stakeholder engagement: backcasting, biz case, passion <br />
  • collaboration: maximize resources, partnerships, cooperative networks, like ACCO <br /> stakeholder engagement examples: training, events, internal consulting, innovation contests <br />
  • technology: how to scale ideas beyond water coolers and point to point emails <br /> stakeholder engagement examples: social media, crowdsourcing, open source <br />
  • engaging external audiences <br /> what is social media? <br /> examples: blogs, twitter, linkedin, discussion boards (FMYI uses these tools to mkt: examples) <br />

  • Sustainable organizational change It’s time…
  • Is it all about the organization? It’s about you.
  • Is it just about change? It’s all about innovation.
  • What is innovation? Sustainability, collaboration, and tech.
  • How do you create a long term climate vision? Backcasting. The business case. Passion.
  • How do you collaborate to generate new ideas? Training. Events. Internal consulting.
  • How do you scale your impact using tech? Social media. Crowdsourcing. Open source.
  • External social media tools. Twitter. Blogs. Communities.
  • OUR MANIFESTO — HATCHED IN A PORTLAND COFFEE SHOP. Now is the time to stop the drudgery. That feeling of never‐quite‐ being‐caught‐up. That feeling that you just might have everything you need for a project, if you could only find it. That’s called work. We’re against work. We’re for innovating. Get to the best part, the energizing part, right from the start—thinking, doing, creating. And, while you’re innovating, keep empowering! There’s nothing we like more than figuring out how to minimize our environmental footprint and maximize our societal impact. We know you’re that way too. You’re good people. Our kind of people. We’re in this together. So let’s get innovating.
