Gildan Activewear Inc. announced the publication of its 17th Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report. The 2020 ESG report outlines its approach and commitment to ESG, the company’s 2020 performance results and key priorities to continuing its vision of Making Apparel Better.

In 2020, the company faced unprecedented circumstances due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and two back-to-back hurricanes in Central America; however, it ended the year on a strong note, demonstrating that operating and financial performance combined with a focus on ESG creates value for all stakeholders.

“Last year, more than ever, we were able to witness the strength and resiliency of our unique business model and the importance of ESG,” said Glenn Chamandy, president and CEO of Gildan. “While we are pleased with the success and recognition we have achieved, there is still more work to be done and we are now working on our “Next Generation” ESG strategy and a new set of long-term goals, which we will announce later this year.”
