[DOC] Nike's response
[Nike’s response to concerns about its business relationship with Daewoo International, which allegedly profits from forced labour in Uzbekistan]. In regard to your question regarding Uzbek cotton, Nike is an official signer of the Cotton Pledge, a commitment made by over 130 companies to state their opposition to the use of forced child labor in the harvest of Uzbek cotton. Uzbek cotton is an important topic and we continue to reiterate our commitment to not incorporate cotton from Uzbekistan into our products. We have taken internal steps to ensure that our contract manufacturers do not use materials containing Uzbek cotton for NIKE and our affiliate production. Those steps include surveying our apparel vendor base on cotton sources using our Apparel Materials Cotton Spinning Location Report managed by the Global Apparel Materials Manufacturing team.
