HanesBrands Earns Top Scores from CDP Maintaining Leader Status Among Industry Peers

HanesBrands Scores A- in Climate Change and Water Security for the Second Consecutive Year

HanesBrands (HBI), a global leader in iconic apparel brands, has been recognized for the second consecutive year with an A- score on the global CDP annual sustainability disclosures across two key areas of environmental impact – climate change and water security.

HanesBrands achieved this recognition for its leadership in transparency, best practices and coordinated action on climate change issues and water security. CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process earns widespread acclaim as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. This year, an unprecedented 21,000 companies disclosed, marking a notable 24% increase compared to 2023.

“We take great pride in being acknowledged as a frontrunner among industry peers for our transparency and commitment to sustainability, both of which are reflected in our outstanding CDP ratings,” said Steve Bratspies, CEO of HanesBrands. “This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work being done by HanesBrands associates around the world who are focused on reaching our 2025/2030 sustainability goals and who want to do the right thing for the planet.”

HanesBrands’ leadership status illustrates its incredible commitment to high sustainability standards. The company has set carbon emissions reduction targets through the Science-Based Targets Initiative to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 50% and Scope 3 emissions by 30% by 2030. Moreover, HanesBrands is committed to reducing water use by 25% in their own operations by 2030.

The company has been named as one of the 100 most sustainable companies in the nation multiple times by Barron’s and is the only apparel company to earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award. HanesBrands is also very proud to have been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere.
