Hanes comes out with carbon emissions report
Sep '17
HanesBrands, a leading global marketer of everyday basic apparel under world-class brands, has come out with its carbon emissions and related information in the CDP 2017 Climate Change Report. Compared with its 2007 baseline, in 2016 the company reduced its energy use by 16 per cent, carbon emissions by 16 per cent and water use by 25 per cent.

The company reports progress against its environmental performance goals on an annual basis. This marks the seventh year that the company has participated in this volunatry initiative.

Hanes also shifted 25 per cent of the energy the company uses to renewable sources and diverted 84 per cent – or 118 million pounds – of waste from its company-owned supply chain from landfills.

Hanes earned a B score for carbon emissions in the CDP’s 2016 report. The company, unique in the apparel industry because it owns the significant majority of its manufacturing and supply chain operations, achieved the score for transparency, effectively managing emissions, implementing best practices and taking coordinated action on climate-change issues.

Hanes voluntarily discloses its environmental-performance data to the CDP because the company and its employees are committed to building a sustainable legacy, according to Michael E Faircloth, Hanes’ president and chief global supply chain officer and a finalist in Ethical Corporation’s Responsible Business Awards for the 2017 Sustainability Leader of the Year.

“HanesBrands has significantly reduced its energy use and carbon emissions since 2007,” Faircloth said. “By embracing environmental sustainability and the conservation of natural resources, Hanes and its 68,000 worldwide employees are creating value for our company, our investors, our consumers and our communities. We are focused on continuing to make significant strides in protecting the environment, and publicly reporting progress against our goals is an important part of that effort.”

The company, an eight-time winner of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star partner of the year/sustained excellence award, has aggressive 2020 goals to continue reducing its environmental footprint.

Hanes is committed to a 40 per cent reduction in energy use and carbon emissions, 50 per cent reduction in water use, sourcing renewable energy for 40 per cent of the company’s needs, and achieving zero waste by diverting company-owned supply chain waste from landfills. (SV)
