Nike recently announced that it had signed a second substantial contract with Avangrid Renewables.
The agreement is for 86 megawatts of power over the life of the deal, which is enough energy to power 400,000 average American households with carbon-free energy or the emissions reduction equivalent of removing approximately 800,000 vehicles off the road for a year.
This agreement enables us to source 100 percent renewable energy across our owned or operated facilities in North America. Investing in renewable energy is good for athletes, the planet and for business.
– Hannah Jones, Chief Sustainability Officer and VP of the Innovation Accelerator for Nike.
