"We are deeply disappointed by the recent shift in climate policy."
Yesterday afternoon President Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, claiming the agreement is "unfair at the highest level to the United States."
In 2015, 195 different countries agreed to the Paris Climate Accord which looked to fight climate change by adopting clean energy practices, phasing out fossil fuels and limiting carbon emissions, was agreed to by 195 different countries in 2015. According to Green Label, more than 50% of Americans in each state are against withdrawing from the agreement.
Some companies are now speaking out against Trump's decision, including Nike who has voiced their disappointment with some of his policies in the past.

"We are deeply disappointed by the recent shift in climate policy. Nike believes that climate change is a serious global threat and that the world will need to radically redesign industrial systems and economies in order to enable a low-carbon growth economy. We will continue to honor the core commitments of the American Business Act on Climate Change Pledge, including reaching 100% renewable energy in all Nike owned or operated facilities around the world by 2025, participating in the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings Challenge and advancing materials innovation globally."
