Nike Does Not Support President Donald Trump's Decision On Paris Climate Agreement
Nike and many people across America are not happy with our president. Last Thursday, President Donald Trump announced his plans to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement. The Paris Climate Agreement brought 196 countries together, who would agree to regularly report its own contribution it should make in order to mitigate global warming. This argument would have started in 2020. Many celebrities have voiced their opinions, on the president's decision to back out of the agreement and Nike decided to add their own opinion into the mix.
"We are deeply disappointed by the recent shift in climate policy. Nike believes that climate change is a serious global threat and that the world will need to radically redesign industrial systems and economies in order to enable a low-carbon growth economy. We will continue to honor the core commitments of the American Business Act on Climate Change Pledge, including reaching 100% renewable energy in all Nike-owned or operated facilities around the world by 2025, participating in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge and advancing materials innovation globally."
Nike is not the only company to speak out against the president on this issue. Under Amour, Gap, Facebook, Google, and Apple have all spoke out, begging the president to keep America in the Paris Climate Agreement.
