HUGO BOSS Cotton Commitment

Cotton is the most important raw material for the high quality products of HUGO BOSS and accounts for about 50% of the materials used in its products. The Cotton Commitment of the Company outlines the requirements for a sustainable cotton cultivation and is the basis for the cotton sourcing in collaboration with suppliers. Due to the high standards that HUGO BOSS applies to the cotton used, a diversified cotton sourcing strategy is necessary. It includes requirements regarding quality, availability and sustainability of the raw materials. A close collaboration with international initiatives, field experts, as well as local initiatives of partners will be initiated to create tangible improvements in the field of sustainability. HUGO BOSS will participate in the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), Cotton LEADS and the Yarn Ethical and Sustainable Sourced (YESS). Moreover, cotton will be sourced from partners that have their own initiatives in place, such as the microfinancing of cotton farmers implemented by the supplier Esquel or the Cottonforlife project from Filmar. In preparation of the implementation of the cotton strategy, HUGO BOSS is currently conducting surveys amongst the largest cotton product suppliers, who are requested to provide information on the following topics: Amount of cotton used per country of origin, sustainable farming methods in place and certifications of used cotton. Based on the data gathered, mid- and long-term targets for more sustainable cotton will be set, together with the suppliers. These targets will be published and progress reported.
