Champion Sustainability Fund

Champion Sustainability Fund

Through the Champion Sustainability Fund, Carolina community members are encouraged to submit project ideas focused on energy efficiency to the advisory group, made up of sustainability leaders from HanesBrands and Carolina. Selected projects will receive seed funding to put plans into action. Once a project is approved and implemented, the cost savings created through the project will be reinvested back into the fund, allowing sustainability initiatives to keep moving forward. By reinvesting savings, the fund will build future funding levels to continue offering opportunities for the Carolina community to achieve its sustainability goals. All projects must be completed in Facilities and be supported through the state appropriated utilities account.
