    NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / June 5, 2024 / With a longstanding commitment to sustainability, leading apparel manufacturer Gildan has had an ESG journey spanning two decades. This World Environment Day, we sat down with the leaders comprising Gildan's ESG Steering Committee, tasked with implementing and executing the Next Generation ESG strategy. As part of this strategy, Gildan pledged to make meaningful advancements against 12 goals under five areas of focus, each chaired by key leaders across the organization:

    • Climate, Energy, and Water
    • Circularity
    • Human Capital Management
    • Long-term Value Creation
    • Transparency and Disclosure

    Today, leaders of the five working groups share, in their own words, what sustainability means to them and how they are contributing to a more sustainable future through their work at Gildan. Here's what they had to say:

    Peter Iliopoulos, Senior Vice-President of Taxation, Sustainability, and Governmental Affairs

    As the head of ESG across the entire organization, Peter Iliopoulos is responsible for providing strategic direction over the Company's ESG approach, providing governance and guidance as a facilitator and integrator of ESG across the business. Additionally, Peter oversees the Transparency and Disclosure area of focus, driving Gildan's goals of transparently sharing its ESG progress and journey with stakeholders.

    "My work involves bringing together different functional groups within our organization, challenging them to work towards our ambitious goals that are aligned with our values, and communicating our progress transparently with our stakeholders. It is incredibly inspiring to work with passionate teams and colleagues who are always looking forward, and consistently bringing to life various initiatives to support our goals and encourage sustainability across our business." - Peter Iliopoulos

    Claudia Sandoval, Vice-President of Global Social Compliance and Environmental Affairs

    Claudia Sandoval has been with Gildan since 2004, the same year Gildan began its public disclosure journey. Having seen the Company's ESG efforts grow and evolve, Claudia now oversees ESG under Peter Iliopoulos's leadership. She also chairs the Long-term Value Creation area of focus and is responsible for pushing Gildan's goal of contributing to value-driven community projects in the regions where we operate.
