HanesBrands, a leading marketer of everyday basic innerwear and activewear apparel in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, has earned its eighth consecutive US Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Partner of the Year award for sustained excellence in energy conservation, carbon emissions reduction and environmental sustainability.
Energy Star was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased efficiency. The annual Energy Star Partner of the Year award honours organisations that have made outstanding contributions to protect the environment through best practices and organisation-wide energy savings. Hanes is the only apparel company to be honoured for sustained excellence by the programme in its 25-year history.
Hanes, unique in the apparel industry because it owns the significant majority of its manufacturing and supply chain operations, is being recognised by the Energy Star programme for 2016 accomplishments, including integrating newly acquired facilities across multiple continents into the company's energy-management programme, implementing more than 220 projects identified through energy treasure hunts, yielding nearly $2 million in energy savings, and developing long-range energy plans that identify strategic projects to achieve 2020 goals of reducing energy use by 40 per cent, carbon dioxide emissions by 40 per cent and water use by 50 per cent, along with securing at least 40 per cent of its energy from renewable sources. 
Hanes has also committed to diverting 100 per cent of waste in its company-owned supply chain from landfills. 
"HanesBrands is very honoured to earn our eighth consecutive Energy Star Partner of the Year award, and all of the credit goes to each of our more than 68,000 worldwide employees who are committed to energy management and environmental responsibility. We have made significant progress in reducing our environmental footprint, but remain steadfast in our drive to achieve the company's 2020 goals. Doing so is a win-win-win for the environment we all share, the communities in which we operate, and our company and its stakeholder," said Javier Chacon, chief global manufacturing operations officer.  
Hanes recently released the company's 2016 environmental performance data on energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, water use, renewable energy and landfill diversion. Compared with its 2007 baseline, the company reduced its energy use by 16 per cent, carbon emissions by 16 per cent and water use by 25 per cent. Hanes also shifted 25 percent of the energy the company uses to renewable sources, including biomass, hydroelectric and geothermal, and diverted 84 per cent, or 118 million pounds, of waste from its company-owned supply chain from landfills.
