Ethics and the approaches Nike has carried out a revolutionary concept, key features of which were:

- the generation of energy from five local sources: wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric and biomass.
- expansion of logistical capabilities: in addition to rail and road infrastructure includes a network of channels that allows 99% of incoming containers to get to the local container Park on the water. This eliminates approximately 14,000 truck trips each year, reducing the associated carbon emissions.
