"We have made a commitment to sustainable management with the purpose of developing the future growth of the Group. Sustainability at HUGO BOSS is based on the interplay between the three factors of quality, innovation, and responsibility. As one of the leading companies in the premium and luxury segment of the global apparel market, HUGO BOSS and its brands represent premium fashion and accessories for men and women. We ensure that these products are also manufactured in compliance with environmental and ethical standards on the production side. When selecting raw materials and carrying out refinement, we acknowledge the aspect of environmental and socially friendly production. This approach is rooted in our intrinsic conviction and forms part of the quality promise we make to our customers.
Innovation at HUGO BOSS is closely connected with sustainability. The Company works together with external research partners and other stakeholders to develop strategies for materials which focus on preserving species diversity and environmental protection alike. This strategy also includes avoidance of farmed fur and exotic materials, and embraces environmentally friendly processes for leather and a sustainably designed supply chain for cotton intermediate products. Topics like this are defined in a comprehensively consolidated sustainability program, which establishes the conceptual framework for the future. For HUGO BOSS, an intensive dialog with stakeholders also forms part of future research: It generates ideas for product innovations and provides suggestions with the objective of prioritizing and focusing on key themes.
Responsibility forms a key feature of all the processes within the Company – from material procurement, through environmental protection, which has been given greater status with a new Environmental Guideline, to our approach toward our employees. We provide the platform for the team spirit and commitment that make the Company so successful, through a value-based dialog culture and attractive career development opportunities. We also provide intensive support for the different suppliers and production partners of the Company and assist them in implementing and complying with the HUGO BOSS Social Standards so that they are empowered to take responsibility. Beyond the operating business, HUGO BOSS has a sense of responsibility for the communities at its locations.
Sustainability is not a state but a roadmap for HUGO BOSS. We believe that this roadmap will take the Company on a journey to a successful future over the long term. We pursue this objective by making a joint commitment together with our employees and partners and in dialog with our stakeholders."
