Nike has signed a wind energy deal that will see its North American facilities run entirely on renewable power.

The sportswear giant made a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Avangrid Renewables this week to secure 86 megawatts of power from its Karankawa Wind Farm in Texas.

“With this agreement, Nike will source 100% renewable energy across our owned or operated facilities in North America. Moreover, we will deliver on more than 50% of our commitment to source 100% renewable energy in our owned or operated facilities worldwide by the end of FY25. Investing in renewable energy is good for athletes, the planet and for business, and we will continue to drive collaboration to accelerate a low-carbon growth economy,” said Hannah Jones, Nike’s Chief Sustainability Officer and VP, Innovation Accelerator.
