ANNUAL SALES OF

At Gildan, ensuring that our products are manufactured

sustainably and responsibly is simply part of our DNA. As one of

the world’s largest vertically integrated manufacturers of basic apparel,

socks and legwear, our company has direct visibility over virtually the entire

manufacturing process, from raw fib es to the finished p oducts.

This visibility across our

manufacturing process allows us to

uncover positive environmental and

social impacts that many brands

cannot even see. We also leverage

the accumulated expertise from

our own manufacturing operations

to positively influence the small

percentage of our products that are

outsourced.

Gildan’s Genuine Responsibility™

programme, developed over the

last decade, now leads the way in

corporate, social and environmental

responsibility practices across four

key pillars:

PEOPLE

ENVIRONMENT

COMMUNITY

PRODUCT

This robust and transparent

programme provides the framework

for all of the company’s activities

and is built into our overall

corporate strategy. We have come

to understand that operating

responsibly, by treating our

employees with respect and dignity,

by providing safe and ethical work

environments and by continuously

finding new ways to educe our

impacts is critical to our success and

future growth.

Sustainability

is woven into

Over the years, Gildan has evolved

into a unique kind of player in the

apparel industry. Our products,

including t-shirts, fleece, sport shirts,

underwear, socks and sheer hosiery,

are produced almost entirely by

our own employees and in our own

facilities. From spin-ning the yarn,

to dyeing and cutting the fabric, to

sewing our garments, there isn’t a

stitch of our operations that goes

unexamined.

Controlling our own operations

allows us to be a positive contributor

everywhere we operate and the

freedom to act as the corporate

citizen we aspire to be.
