Gildan has once again been recognized as one of Canada’s Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations, as presented in the June 12th, 2015 issue of Maclean’s magazine. This year, for the first time, Sustainalytics ranked companies within their specific industry in order to determine the leaders in Canada by sector. Gildan was one of five companies named in the Textiles, Footwear and Apparel sector. All the recognized companies were selected based on their performance across a broad range of environmental, social and governance indicators tracked by Sustainalytics. Each of the companies is either Canadian or a wholly owned subsidiary of a foreign-listed company with significant operations or brand presence in Canada.

Sustainalytics uses a Best-of-Sector™ methodology to compare companies within a given peer group to industry best practices. Sustainalytics’ research is used by some of the world’s largest institutional and individual investors who consider environmental, social and governance performance, in addition to financial performance, in the management of their investments. Our continued inclusion on this ranking is a testament to the numerous achievements and efforts put forward by Gildan and its employees in the implementation of our leading corporate social responsibility program.

This is a continuous process made possible with the support of all of us who believe in the value of operating with high standards of corporate responsibility towards our employees, our environment, our communities and the production of our products.
