Activists claimed that this would be beneficial for workers in the factories that made the major corporations’ products, as disclosures would force responsible corporate practices and better working conditions. Nike surprised the corporate community when they published their supplier list in 1995, in response to their image which co-founder and former CEO Phil Knight described as “synonymous with slave wages, forced overtime, and arbitrary abuse (Doorey 2011, 600-601).” This image prompted an anti-Nike movement and resulted in the company taking several steps towards corporate responsibility to lose their negative image.
