HanesBrands, a leading marketer of everyday basic innerwear and activewear apparel under world-class brands in the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, has released the company’s 2017 environmental performance. The company has reported achievements in water use, carbon dioxide emissions, energy use, renewable energy use, and landfill diversion.

Across every category, the company posted strong results compared to the previous year. Compared to 2016, Hanes reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 15 per cent, energy use by 6 per cent and water use by 7 per cent, while increasing its use of renewable energy by 7 per cent. Additionally, Hanes again diverted 84 per cent of its supply chain waste from landfills.

Hanes has also pledged to secure at least 40 per cent of its energy from renewable sources (33 per cent in 2017) and achieve zero waste by diverting company-owned supply chain waste from landfills (84 per cent).

Michael E. Faircloth, group president, global supply chain, information technology, and ecommerce for HanesBrands said, “These across-the-board improvements indicate our strong commitment to create a more efficient and energy-conscious organisation for both the areas where we do business and the larger worldwide community. We have taken great strides toward our 2020 goals, and we intend to continue pushing to fulfill our promise to create a more environmentally friendly company.”

For eight consecutive years, Hanes has won the US Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Sustained Excellence/Partner of the Year award, the only apparel company to earn sustained excellence honours. The company ranks No. 194 on Newsweek magazine’s green list of 500 largest US companies for environmental achievement. (GK)
