Nike has recently opened a new distribution center in Ham, Belgium that is 100% powered by renewable energy sources. This is the latest milestone in Nike’s move to zero carbon and zero waste to help protect the future of sport.
Referred to as “The Court”, this distribution center is fully powered by wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric and biomass power. The 1.5 million square feet facility when compared to a traditional warehouse rack-supported structure required less steel and concrete, minimizing waste and reducing material used in the construction process. The Court expands Nike’s logistics capabilities to meet growing consumer demand while advancing sustainability at scale.
“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.”
