US sports wear giant Nike has released its first Corporate Responsibility Report, with the aim of assessing and communicating the impact of how it runs its business.

Primary areas of focus include the company's impact on the environment and labour compliance.

The report points out that the company's environmental sustainability goals have evolved since 1998, when the first Corporate Environmental Policy was drawn up.

Many of the new goals are in the early stages, and have yet to be achieved.
Nike has also joined the World Wildlife Fund's Climate Savers voluntary program, with the aim of reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

With regard to labour compliance, Nike emphasises that it is committed to ensuring workers at the company's 750 contract sites globally have good wages, and a safe and healthy work environment.

The company's independent worker monitoring program will result in 10 per cent of the factory base being monitored for the first three years, which will increase to 30 per cent after that.
