Virtually all Nike, Inc. products are manufactured by independent contract factories that make products for other global companies, often within the same factory building. That means that Nike does not own, operate or employ workers at these factories, but enters into agreements to have product made at those locations for Nike.
Nike also has license agreements that permit unaffiliated parties to manufacture and sell products using Nike-owned trademarks.
The factories featured on this map are all those directly contracted by NIKE, Inc., licensees or agents to manufacture finished goods. Excluded, for example, are material suppliers.
The NIKE, Inc. company portfolio includes Nike, Jordan Brand, Hurley and Converse. The data on this site is reflective of, and can be filtered by, Nike (which includes the Jordan Brand), Converse and Hurley.
Contract factories provide the data, which is then validated when audits are performed during the year. This site is updated quarterly.
All contract manufacturers in our source base are required to adhere to a rigorous set of compliance standards, including Nike’s Code of Conduct and Code Leadership Standards. To learn more about this work, visit about.nike.com/sustainability.
Workers: The total number of workers is calculated based on the total number of employees at each contract factory. This includes line workers (involved in the production of Nike products) and all other employees (such as managers, administrative staff, Human Resources employees and maintenance staff).
The average age and percentage of female and migrant workers are calculated based on the percentage of total line workers.
Migrants: For the purposes of this site, migrant workers refer to workers who have migrated from one country to another (foreign migration), as well as people within a country who have moved from one location to another within its borders (internal migration).
