One of our responsibilities as a global company is to play a role in bringing about positive, systemic change for workers within our supply chain and in the industry. We've run the course – from establishing a Code of Conduct that covers worker protections as well as environmental impacts to pulling together an internal team to enforce it, to releasing our contract factory Audit Tools and working with external bodies to monitor factories and work with stakeholders. Our focus now is on getting to the root of the problems, evaluating our supplier and manufacturing relationships, and finding new ways to define and share responsibility. We believe that placing the worker at the heart of the workplace and having a factory management that respects and invests in its workforce will result in lasting positive results for workers, the factory and NIKE, Inc.


In 2005, we were the first company in our industry to disclose the names and addresses of contract factories producing Nike product,. We’ve now furthered our commitment to transparency by disclosing the factories worldwide that manufacture all NIKE, Inc. (NIKE Brand, Converse, Hurley, Jordan Brand and Nike Golf) products. We remain committed to supply chain transparency and continue to update our publicly available list to encourage and support transparency and collaboration. Our supplier list, which can be filtered for collegiate factories, is available for export on our Interactive Global Manufacturing Map.


The factories featured on this map are "above-the-line" NIKE, Inc. contract factories active as of the date listed on the map. "Above-the-line" refers to all product manufacturing sites directly contracted by NIKE, Inc., licensees, or agents delivering finished goods ready for retail and/or public consumption and bear the NIKE, Inc. brand logos and marks. Excluded, for example, are material suppliers.

The NIKE, Inc. brands are filtered by: Nike (includes Jordan Brand and Nike Golf), Converse and Hurley.

Contract factories provide the data based on a predefined profile. This profile is validated when audits are performed during the year and updated annually.

Contract factory worker totals include management and line workers. The line workers constitute direct labor. Female and migrant worker percentages are averages and based on the number of line workers.

Migrant Workers: For the purposes of this disclosure, internal migration is the movement of workers within a country and foreign migration is the movement of workers from one country to another. The migrant worker figures reported are intended to represent the Foreign Migrant Workers in Nike's global contract supply chain. However, we are aware that in some countries with high levels of internal migration, the figures are a mix of internal and foreign migration. We are working to improve the accuracy of this data.

Code of Conduct

Our greatest responsibility as a global company is to play a role in bringing about positive, systemic change for workers within our supply chain and in the industry. When we look at our overall impact on the world, the needs of nearly 1 million workers in Nike’s contract supply chain overshadows any other group. We also know the size and scale of the combined manufacturing operations has a considerable environmental impact. Since our Code was first adopted in 1991, it has evolved to provide consistency, clarity and alignment across NIKE, Inc., and the industry. It remains a straightforward statement of values, intentions and expectations meant to guide decisions in factories.

We require factories doing business with Nike to post the Code, and we have strengthened the standards by which we measure compliance. We share our Code and the accompanying standards with the public, to keep focused on the high expectations we have set and allow others to understand how we operate and how they can adopt, refine or build on our experience.


While Nike’s Code of Conduct lays out the expectations we have of contracted factories, our Code Leadership Standards articulate the steps factories can take to put the Code into practice and how we measure their efforts and compliance.


Our expectations are high but with the right partners, we can redefine the conventional. Together, we will drive systemic change. Visit the Nike, Inc. Licensee/Agent SM&S Playbook for more information.
