HUGO BOSS Izmir also fully reflects our global efforts regarding sustainability and corporate citizenship. In 2022, the site commissioned a 5,000 square meter solar energy system, which produces 820,000 kWh of electricity per year – the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of 164 households.
The facility aims to meet 35% of its energy needs from renewable energy sources through an investment of 1.25 million Euro next year, and supports the HUGO BOSS AG goal of using electricity only generated from renewable energy sources by 2030.
In terms of corporate citizenship, HUGO BOSS established the HUGO BOSS Education Association in Izmir in 2008, offering scholarships and mentoring to local students from disadvantaged families.
Furthermore, the program “Doors Open for Women” supports women in Izmir who want to re-enter the workforce, demonstrating our commitment to equal opportunities. More than 1,600 women have successfully completed the program since its launch in 2010, and 62% of employees at our Izmir production site are female, including 50% of senior management.
