Sustainable Buildings – Green from the Ground Up

As part of HanesBrands’ environmental sustainability commitment, the company builds and/or retrofits its manufacturing, distribution and office space worldwide in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design guidelines from the U.S. Green Business Council.

As a USGBC member, Hanes is committed to maintaining environmentally sustainable buildings through responsible facility design, construction and management. The company follows LEED guidelines for new construction and employs LEED-based operational practices, including the installation of energy-efficient light fixtures, low-impact cleaning and pest-control chemicals and thermal processes that recapture energy.

Several Hanes facilities around the world are notable for best-in-class energy and environmental-design criteria, including its:

  • 1.3 million-square-foot distribution center in Perris, Calif., one of the world’s largest LEED-certified distribution centers.
  • Sock manufacturing plant in San Juan Opico, El Salvador, and sewing facility in Phu Bai, Vietnam, among the first LEED-certified buildings in those countries.
  • Flagship retail store in Winston-Salem, N.C., one of the first LEED-certified retail outlets in the country and part of the LEED for Retail pilot program.
  • Newest headquarters building in Winston-Salem, N.C., among the relatively few to earn the extremely challenging LEED for Existing Buildings certification.
