US sporting giant NIKE has become the latest company to join an online map that claims to be the only tool in the world to openly link leading multinational corporations to their suppliers’ environmental performance.

Developed by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in the US and the Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE) in China, the IPE Green Supply Chain Map was launched in January and is based on publicly available data from the Chinese Government.

The database and map provide real-time data and historical trends in air pollution emissions and wastewater discharge for nearly 15,000 major industrial facilities in China and access to environmental supervision records for over half a million more.

Nike becomes the tenth brand to become a member of the Supply Chain Map, following denim giant Levi Strauss & Co and supermarket retailer Tesco last month.

With Nike’s 118 suppliers, the map now includes over 1,300 enterprises from brands including fellow sports brands Puma, adidas and New Balance, as well as apparel brands Esprit, Gap Inc. and Inditex.

Map users can filter by brand to view individual companies’ supply chains and click on a supplier to check its environmental performance, including the real-time data for air emissions and wastewater discharge, feedback about environmental supervision records, as well as their annual emissions and resources usage data.
