Whenever business buildings are renovated or built from the ground up, we plan reduced energy consumption and low emissions from the start – through independent supply systems and energy-efficient technologies. For new construction, we strive to achieve sustainability certifications from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), most recently obtained for the new HUGO BOSS flat goods warehouse in Filderstadt and a new administration building at company headquarters in Metzingen.
One specific example of how HUGO BOSS conserves energy is the use of LED lighting. The lighting systems at two distribution centers in Germany and Australia, as well as the company’s largest internal production site in Izmir (Turkey), was successively changed to LED. Together with other energy-saving measures – such as an optimization of operating hours and organizational processes and the use of timer switches, the company has cut electricity use by around 1,500 MWh annually.
