December 16th, 2014 - In 2014, for the first time, HUGO BOSS AG took part in the survey on climate protection run by the international non-profit organisation CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). This survey provides companies, towns and cities with a global system where they can voluntarily post specific types of data on their environmental actions. Using the platform, HUGO BOSS published information on aspects of its energy and environmental protection policies, in addition to details of its strategy for cutting Group-wide CO2 emissions.
CDP confirmed that HUGO BOSS possesses above-average awareness of climate change and distinguished the company for being the best newcomer in the Germany, Austria and Switzerland region. The award testifies to the responsible actions of the HUGO BOSS Group which has been promoting environmental protection in an array of its projects for many years. These include the increased use of renewable energies in the company and an energy management tool used to support ISO 50001 certification. This tool allows energy consumption to be measured more accurately, including in relation to the weather conditions. This helps to increase energy efficiency on an ongoing basis.
In the course of its operations HUGO BOSS pursues the goal of combatting climate change and hence of helping to preserve the planet's natural resources. CDP is the world's largest network of companies and investors seeking to tackle climate change. Numerous companies and cities around the world use CDP to assess their strategies for lowering greenhouse gas emissions, precluding water scarcity and preventing deforestation. In doing so, they both increase their transparency and commit themselves publicly to protecting the environment.
