Hanesbrands gets LEED certificate for office in Bentonville

Hanesbrands Inc, a leading marketer of innerwear, outerwear and hosiery apparel, announced that it has earned the U.S. Green Building Council's sustainability certification for its Bentonville, Ark., sales office.

The prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification is the first in Bentonville and the first for commercial interiors in Arkansas. Only 12 other buildings have earned LEED designations in the state.

"We are excited to have the first LEED-certified office in Wal-Mart's hometown," said Hanesbrands Chief Executive Officer Richard A. Noll.

"Hanesbrands and Wal-Mart have made significant commitments to environmental sustainability and running their businesses in a socially responsible manner, and we are proud to partner with our top customer in doing the right thing for the planet."

The 9,986-square-foot office, which opened in August 2007 to support Hanesbrands' business with Wal-Mart Stores Inc, features advanced lighting, heating and cooling systems, natural light for every workspace, energy-efficient appliances, and low-emission construction materials such as paint, adhesives, sealants, carpet, coatings and furniture.

The office is located inside Bentonville Plaza, an existing nine-story building within walking distance of Wal-Mart's home office.

To accommodate Hanesbrands' goal, Bentonville Plaza incorporated a rigorous recycling program, green janitorial cleaning products, bike racks and showers for fuel-free commuting, and an exterior smoking zone that conforms to U.S. Green Building Council guidelines.
