Reducing our environmental footprint

At all operating levels, Gildan is aware of the fact that we operate as part of a greater whole: the environment in which we live and work. This translates into a heightened sense of responsibility to preserve our existing environmental resources and to implement processes designed to reduce, the impact of our activities on our surroundings.

In an era of growing resource depletion and environmental degradation, a narrow, compliance-based approach will not generate the kind of results we need to reduce our environmental footprint and insure our long-term competitiveness. Neither will it help improve the lives of those who work with or live near us. Gildan is committed to continuing to develop innovative environmental solutions that make the best use of our manufacturing facilities while continuing to focus on operational excellence. Gildan’s environmental program accomplishes two core objectives: reduce our environmental impact and preserve the natural resources used in our manufacturing processes.
