Greenpeace targets Nike in latest ‘catwalk’

Written by John Mowbray

BEIJING - Greenpeace's latest 'Detox Catwalk', which ranks apparel brands on their progress in adhering to its Detox Campaign criteria on chemical management, has singled out Nike and LiNing as 'greenwashers' while listing 16 other apparel brands as 'leaders' – among them Inditex, Puma, Mango, Esprit and Burberry. Nike's poor ranking is likely to raise a few eyebrows given its proactive approach on chemical management, including its partnership with bluesign technologies, its participation in the development of the apparel industry's first common Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) and its pioneering development of the Materials Sustainability Index (MSI) which it has expanded and shared with the wider apparel industry during the past 12 months. These achievements were not enough to prevent Nike being ranked below the likes of Primark, Benetton and Valentino.
