HanesBrands (NYSE: HBI) makes everyday apparel that is known and loved by consumers around the world for comfort, quality and value. Among the company’s iconic brands are Hanes, the leading basic apparel brand in the United States; Champion, an innovator at the intersection of lifestyle and athletic apparel; and Bonds, which is setting new standards for design and sustainability.
HBI employs 61,000 associates in 47 countries and has built a strong reputation for workplace quality and ethical business practices. In May 2021, HBI launched its Full Potential plan – the company’s roadmap to drive improved revenue and profits during the next three years and beyond.
Unlike most apparel companies, more than 70% of the apparel we sell is manufactured in our own facilities or those of dedicated contractors. Owning the majority of our supply chain not only impacts cost, scale and flexibility, but also the ability to adhere to best-in-class workplace and sustainability practices.
In 2021, HBI was one of two apparel manufacturers named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere and garnered a spot on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies for the third consecutive year. This follows the December 2020 announcement that HBI earned “A List” recognition for leadership in corporate sustainability in the CDP 2020 Climate Change Report.
We are committed to making the world a more comfortable, livable and inclusive place. We have established new, wide-ranging 2030 global sustainability goals and launched a new sustainability website, www.HBISustains.com, designed to increase our transparency on key metrics. We approach sustainability from a broad, holistic perspective and focus our efforts in areas addressed by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals under three pillars: People, Planet and Product.
