In February 2019 the Fair Labor Association (FLA) board of directors voted to re-accredit Nike’s social compliance program for the third time.
“At Nike, we are deeply invested and engaged in respecting and advancing human rights,” said Jaycee Pribulsky, Vice President of Sustainable Manufacturing and Sourcing, NIKE, Inc. “When brands, organizations, and governments work together, we can help make a global impact and improve the lives of workers in global supply chains.”
The FLA reaccreditation report highlighted the continuous review and improvement of our social compliance tools and social compliance program strengths. These include:
- Our executive management and board of directors’ commitment to uphold workplace standards
- Staff understanding of trends in labor violations and their expertise in finding solutions with suppliers
- Strict protocols to ensure responsible purchasing practices
- Ongoing development of partnerships with external stakeholders to address systemic labor violations
- Innovative programs to support suppliers as they improve factory-level working conditions
FLA accreditation is the gold standard for a systems-level approach to human rights compliance and social responsibility.
