Gildan Activewear honored in CDP leadership and S&P Global Yearbook


Gildan Activewear Inc. proudly announces its fourth consecutive inclusion in CDP's Leadership band for its 2023 climate change disclosures, alongside its 12th consecutive recognition in the Sustainability Yearbook 2024 by S&P Global. 

Vince Tyra, President and CEO of Gildan, emphasized the company's steadfast commitment to sustainable practices, attributing the accolades to the extensive implementation of their Next Generation ESG strategy.

CDP awarded Gildan an A- for its climate change disclosure, placing the company above the sector average and among the top 30 per cent of organizations achieving Leadership status. 

Noteworthy achievements included exceptional performance in Scope 1 and 2 GHG emission management, robust risk management protocols, and proactive emission reduction initiatives. CDP, a global environmental disclosure platform, commended Gildan's efforts alongside over 23,000 participating organizations worldwide.

Inclusion in S&P Global's Sustainability Yearbook, based on the 2023 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) score, further underscored Gildan's sustainability leadership. Among only six companies recognized in the Textiles, Apparel, and Luxury Goods sector, Gildan stood out as the sole North American representative. 

The rigorous methodology of the CSA, requiring companies to rank within the top 15 per cent of their industry and achieve a score within 30 per cent of the top performers, highlighted Gildan's exemplary sustainability performance.

Peter Iliopoulos, Senior Vice-President of Taxation, Sustainability, and Governmental Affairs, commended the dedication of Gildan's global workforce in integrating ESG principles into the company's operations, reaffirming its position as an industry leader in sustainable apparel manufacturing.
