The Managing Board and the Supervisory Board have reported as follows pursuant to Section 3.10 of the German Corporate Governance Code on corporate governance at HUGO BOSS:
The Managing Board and the Supervisory Board are convinced that good corporate governance is a key factor for long-term business success. Good corporate governance is therefore an integral part of HUGO BOSS and a guiding principle encompassing all areas of the Company. The Managing Board and Supervisory Board are committed to ensuring the Company’s continuation as a going concern as well as sustainable value creation through responsible, transparent, and long-term corporate governance. At the same time, HUGO BOSS aims to live up to and further strengthen the trust placed in the Company by its employees, shareholders, business partners, and the public.
In fiscal year 2022, the Managing Board and Supervisory Board dealt in detail with compliance with the requirements of the German Corporate Governance Code (GCGC) and, as a result, issued the Declaration of Compliance most recently in February 2023. It is included at the end of this chapter and, like previous declarations of compliance, published on the corporate website. Apart from the exceptions mentioned therein, HUGO BOSS complies with the recommendations of the GCGC as amended on April 28, 2022, published in the Bundesanzeiger [German Federal Gazette] on June 27, 2022.
