Nike is required by the The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act to disclose efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from direct supply chains.
Nike takes seriously the federal and international efforts to end all kinds of forced labor - whether in the form of prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, human trafficking or otherwise - through standards set forth in our Code of Conduct, originally established by Nike, and subsequently adopted by affiliated companies, including the section "Employment is Voluntary".
Nike's policy is to evaluate potential contracted factories before they enter the supply chain to assess compliance with standards including country-related risk for issues including forced labor, human trafficking and slavery. Nike uses both internal and external third-party audits.
Nike is working on mapping and understanding impacts further up the supply chain, to develop standards for upstream suppliers of contracted manufacturers.
If a contracted factory is found to violate laws or Nike standards, it is responsible for improving performance against a master action plan. If the factory fails to make progress against that plan, they are subject to review and sanctions, including potential termination.
Employees and management with direct responsibility for supply chain management are provided training on forced labor, including human trafficking and slavery.
