On Wednesday, the sportswear company announced that for the first time it will tie executive compensation to progress in diversity and sustainability targets. The news came as part of the release of its 2020 impact report, which provided updates on company targets as well as strategy plans for the future.

Its new 2025 targets include seeing women in 45 percent and racial minorities in 35 percent of leadership roles, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent in Nike-owned facilities and multiplying the amount of product waste recycled or donated, among other goals.

Nike provided several updates on its sustainability and diversity targets, including the use of 100 percent renewable energy in facilities in the US and Canada, as well as nearly 50 percent representation of women across the country globally. John Donahoe, president and CEO at Nike, stated “We’re proud of the successes we’ve seen, but we know the work is still just beginning.”

The impact report has claimed to have seen progress throughout the supply chain through enhancing renewable energy and diverting manufacturing waste from landfill. Nike also met the FY20 target by reducing freshwater use in textile dyeing and finishing suppliers by 30 percent.

While GU, with slightly lower prices than Uniqlo and clothes aimed at younger clientele, has a solid presence in Japan, it’s less known in other major markets. Building its presence abroad is part of Fast Retailing founder Tadashi Yanai’s push to “become a true global player,” by first doubling annual profit to ¥5 trillion within a few years.



The best stores don’t just serve as billboards or customer touchpoints —they’re a stable and lucrative revenue stream. As younger consumers have embraced in-store shopping despite their digital native instincts, the value of stores is undeniable. Running an effective store requires choosing the right location, understanding its sales potential and making sure it serves its local clientele.
