HUGO BOSS Cotton Commitment

With a share of approx. 50% of the total material used, cotton plays an important role for HUGO BOSS. In order to guarantee the quality and longevity of our products, HUGO BOSS sets highest demands on this raw material.

Cotton is grown under different social, cultural, geographic, ecological and economic conditions. These aspects can affect the quality of cotton. In order to ensure consistently high product quality, HUGO BOSS has opted for an open cotton sourcing strategy, which is in line with our sustainability strategy. The HUGO BOSS Cotton Commitment outlines all requirements for sustainable cotton cultivation. Environmental aspects such as land use, the use of chemicals, water consumption and socio-economic factors are taken into account.

When it comes to the sourcing of cotton, these aspects are central to HUGO BOSS. Through cooperation with international initiatives such as the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) and Yarn Ethical and Sustainable Sourced (YESS) or the Cotton LEADS Program, HUGO BOSS is committed to increasing the proportion of sustainable cotton in its products. In addition, the company also works with local initiatives and cotton experts to achieve measurable improvements in terms of sustainability. The sustainable cotton sourcing strategy of HUGO BOSS, which is implemented through collaboration and cooperation with suppliers, is based on those aspects. 

Sustainable Cotton Sourcing Strategy

Based on the HUGO BOSS Cotton Commitment, the company has set specific targets for the implementation of a sustainable sourcing strategy for cotton:

By 2020: Use of 50% sustainable cotton according to the Cotton Commitment criteria

By 2025: Use of 80% sustainable cotton according to the Cotton Commitment criteria

These targets are pursued in collaboration with the above mentioned initiatives (BCI, YESS, Cotton LEADS) – which are also described in more detail in the Cotton Commitment – and depend on various factors such as new technologies or new findings related to circular economy. The quality requirements of different product groups also influence the share of cotton from sustainability initiatives that can be used.

In cooperation with its suppliers, HUGO BOSS will continuously review the share of sustainable cotton, publish the progress made and explain possible adjustments to its sourcing strategy.
