Gildan, a leading manufacturer and marketer of basic apparel, recently received the Distintivo ESR 2016 award, a recognition given to companies in Latin America for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts.

The Distintivo ESR award presented by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Cemefi) and the Alliance for Corporate Social responsibility (Aliarse) is given to companies that voluntarily commit to implementing a social responsibility and continuous improvement management system, and fully integrate it into their culture and business strategy. Gildan is the only company in the apparel sector listed this year.

“It is an honour to be recognized by progressive organizations in Latin America for the efforts that we are making to provide good working conditions for our employees, minimize our environmental footprint and nurture the communities in which we operate. At Gildan we have a strong commitment to operating responsibly and sustainably, as a core element of our business model and key driver of our future growth and success,” said Benito Masi, executive vice-president, manufacturing at Gildan.

Gildan provides safe, ethical and fair working conditions for employees, with additional benefits, such as free medical care and subsidised transportation and meals. (HO)
