Also in 2018, the company developed the capability to convert wastewater sludge to energy, retrofitted 10 facilities with LED tubes and improved water efficiency in boiler operations with reverse osmosis technology.
“We’re celebrating a decade of environmental excellence with the honor of a 2019 Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award because HanesBrands’ 68,000 worldwide employees have embraced environmental stewardship and actively led our energy management initiatives,” said Mike Faircloth, group president, global supply chain, information technology and e-commerce for HanesBrands. “And we’re very proud to remain the only apparel company to earn sustained excellence honors in the EPA Energy Star program’s 27-year history.
The Energy Star award follows the February announcement that Hanes earned an A- score and leadership position in the CDP 2018 Climate Change Report. The company scored in the top 6 per cent of nearly 7,000 companies that participated in the most recent report and achieved the highest score in the apparel industry.
The company achieved significant progress against aggressive 2020 goals, including a 23 per cent reduction in energy use per pound of production versus its 2007 baseline and a 2 per cent reduction from 2017. Renewable energy sources accounted for 41% of the company’s energy usage, surpassing its 2020 goal of 40 per cent. Further, it saw a 36 per cent decrease in carbon dioxide emissions versus its 2007 baseline, nearly reaching its 2020 goal of 40 per cent reduction.
“But we have much work yet to do as we remain intensely focused on achieving our 2020 environmental sustainability goals,” he continued. “We believe this effort and our commitment to be an international leader in eco-friendly business operations creates value for our company, our investors, our consumers, our employees and our communities.”
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 organization-wide energy savings.
