On Thursday, President Trump announced that the United States would be withdrawing from the Paris climate accord, which 195 nations signed to band together as a global community and battle rising temperatures and climate change. Nike, who has made its stance against the actions and decisions of Donald clear in the past, immediately responded by issuing a statement which was tweeted out by Sara Eisen.

We are deeply disappointed by the recent shift in climate policy. Nike believes that climate change is a serious global threat and that the world will need to radically redesign industrial systems and economies in order to enable a low-carbon growth economy. We will continue to honor the core commitments of the American Business Act on Climate Change Pledge, including reaching 100% renewable energy in all Nike owned or operated facilities around the world by 2025, participating in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge and advancing materials innovation globally.
