HUGO BOSS has an environmental management program that is based on internationally recognized standards such as DIN EN ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. Focus topics are energy consumption and CO2 emissions as well as water use and waste management. In addition, HUGO BOSS is striving for sustainability certifications for all new buildings of our own business premises and for selected key retail stores of central importance to our retail business.
Environmental management systems according to DIN EN ISO 14001
We operate externally certified environmental management systems at our own production sites in Turkey, Poland and Italy. Thus, we continuously improve our environmental performance and verifiably meet legal regulations.
Energy management systems according to DIN EN ISO 50001
Since 2017, all of HUGO BOSS’s European locations have been certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001. We are continuously working on further improving the energy efficiency of our locations by analyzing environmental data. We are identifying and implementing potential energy and water savings beyond that. In addition to ISO 14001, the largest HUGO BOSS production site in Turkey is also certified according to ISO 50001. This underlines the importance of improving the energy efficiency of our own locations.
Building certification by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB)
We strive to implement the standards of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) for the construction of our own new buildings. Our three new buildings in Germany have already been successfully certified with platinum, the highest level awarded by the DGNB.
Sustainability certification of selected key retail stores
Selected key retail stores are certified by internationally recognized certification systems for the classification of sustainable buildings, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) or the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM). Two stores, in Boston and Denver (USA), have already been certified according to LEED. Learn more about this topic here.
