HanesBrands focuses on improving the lives of at least 10 million people

28 October 2020: While announcing its 2030 Global Sustainability Goals, HanesBrands expressed its commitment to improve the lives of at least 10 million people. HanesBrands is a leading marketer of everyday basic innerwear and activewear apparel in the Americas, Europe, Australia and Asia-Pacific.

It will use science-based targets to accelerate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and its packaging and product targets to address use of plastics and sustainable raw materials. As part of the company’s 2030 goals, HanesBrands has signed the Science Based Targets Call-to-Action Commitment Letter, pledging the company to develop science-based targets by 2022.

Moreover, HanesBrands goals were launched via a new sustainability website,, designed to increase company transparency and reporting on key metrics, including diversity, human rights benchmarks and risk assessments for investors.

The company’s efforts, which build upon its long-term success in ethical workplace practices, community building, energy and carbon emissions reduction and environmental sustainability, are being developed in alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 U.N. SDGs address global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, good health and decent work.

By 2030, HanesBrands will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25% to align with science-based targets, reduce water use by 25%, use 100% renewable electricity in company-owned operations, and bring landfill waste to zero. HanesBrands will eliminate all single-use plastics and reduce packaging weight by 25% while also moving to 100% recycled polyester and sustainably sourced cotton.
