Nike's Renewable Energy Distribution Centre

Nike's Renewable Energy Distribution Centre
Following Nike's recent pledge to reduce their carbon emissions as a brand (Move to Zero), they have also recently showed off a distribution centre that’ll definitely help them reach their new planet-saving goals. 
 
The 1.5 million square feet centre is located in Belgium and runs entirely on renewable energy - that's 100%. But they don’t rely on just one type either. The centre's power comes from five locally generated sources: wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric and biomass.

 
The centre which has been named the 'Court’ also recycles 95% of its waste and receives all of its deliveries by ship thanks to the nearby canals. This fact alone eliminates the use of 14,000 truck journeys each year, according to Nike. Lastly, compared to a traditional warehouse, the Court’s rack-supported structure required less steel and concrete, minimising waste and reducing material used in the construction process.

“Our new Court Distribution Center represents Nike’s continued investment in a fast and flexible supply chain to deliver the full range of our product to consumers when they want it, where they want it,” says Eric Sprunk, Nike Chief Operating Officer. “This state-of-the-art facility will increase our responsiveness as we accelerate our digital growth and better serve millions of consumers across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.”
