Gildan has obtained WRAP certification for its Honduran, Haitian and primary Mexican sewing facilities. Gildan’s initial WRAP certification followed a comprehensive and independent verification carried out by the Bureau Veritas Quality International. WRAP is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and certification of lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing throughout the world. WRAP promotes a code of conduct that ensures that core labor concepts are understood and practiced on the shop room floor and by management. WRAP relies upon independent, third party monitors to certify that factories are in compliance with WRAP’s Code of Conduct.
