Although Nike does not disclose all of the details about the countries they are in, some of the known countries include Indonesia, China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, the Philippines and Malaysia.

Despite Nike’s listing as one of 226 companies to be recognized for sustainability efforts on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the company faces major challenges with monitoring its labor conditions by factories operated oversees.

Nike claims the poor labor practices in the factories they work with has stopped, and they put in strict requirements for vendors with which they work.
