Nike to quit Chamber post in climate protest - Lisa Lerer -
will relinquish its spot on the board of directors at the Chamber of Commerce to
protest the business lobby’s opposition to climate-change legislation.
'We believe that on the issue of climate change the Chamber has not represented the
diversity of perspective held by the board of directors,' the company says in a
statement obtained by POLITICO. 'Therefore, we have decided to resign our board
of directors position.'"
Props to the Swoosh on this one. Good to see someone taking this serious issue seriously.
