Making Our Mark
At Gildan we’re dedicated to providing our customers with high quality products, but in keeping with our overall vision of Making Apparel BetterTM, our commitment goes much deeper. When you choose to shop one of the Gildan Brands collection, you are joining our efforts to continuously improve our environmental, social and economic impacts around the globe.
As part of the Gildan family of brands, we’re committed to our Genuine ResponsibilityTM program, an industry-leading comprehensive framework of social and environmental practices that ensure we meet our high standards for labor practices, working conditions, environmental protections and product safety. This is made possible because we own and operate the facilities where our products are made, directly controlling and positively influencing every step in the process.
We are quite proud of the work we have done but remain committed to pursuing continuous improvements beyond our current results which include generating 43% of our total energy needs from renewable sources, recycling or repurposing 86% of the Company’s total waste and reducing our water usage by more than 1.3M cubic meters while simultaneously increasing our production.
Our people remain our most important resource, 50,000 direct employees striving to deliver high quality products, always responsibly made. We seek to empower them with not only fair wages and generous benefits but also by providing training and development programs that help them develop personally and professionally. In 2018 we delivered more than 2 million man-hours of training, creating sustainable value for our employees, their families and the communities where we operate.
