Gildan Activewear, a leading supplier of quality branded basic family apparel, including t-shirts, fleece, sport shirts, underwear, socks, hosiery, and shapewear, has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World Index) for a third consecutive year, effective as of September 21, 2015.

Gildan is the only North American company in the textiles, apparel, and luxury goods industry group to be included in the DJSI World Index, according to a company press release.

Glenn Chamandy, president and chief executive officer Gildan said, “We are pleased to once again be included in the DJSI World Index. We are very proud of this achievement and share the recognition with our 42,000 dedicated employees and all our stakeholders and business partners worldwide. As one of the world's leading vertically integrated manufacturers of everyday family apparel, we recognise first hand that a strong commitment to leading corporate social responsibility practices and a culture of continuous improvement and investments in the latest technology are equally critical to our success. The inclusion in the DJSI World Index as the only North American company in our sector provides further validation that Gildan is genuinely focused on leading the way. We remain committed to these efforts as we recognise they are an essential part of our future success.”

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices were launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmarks. The indices are offered cooperatively by RobecoSAM and S&P Dow Jones Indices. The family tracks the stock performance of the world's leading companies in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria. The indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
