For the fifth time in a row, HUGO BOSS has been included in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World. This ranks us among the top three companies in the textile, apparel and luxury segments that qualified for the index this year. With this year's results we scored best-in-class in the areas of Innovation Management, Risk & Crisis Management, Tax Strategy, and Environmental and Social Reporting. We also are listed in the DJSI Europe for the second time in a row.
The inclusion in the globally recognized and highly valued sustainability index confirms our high standards in the area and the efficiency with which we implement our sustainability strategy and goals. It also confirms that it is only through a high level of transparency on social and environmental factors (ESG criteria) that we succeed in driving change – both in our own area of responsibility and across the industry.
The DJSI indices are among the best-known sustainability indices. They compare companies worldwide or in a specific region within their respective industry against sustainability criteria. Those listed are the respective Sustainability Leaders, which are determined by the rating agency S&P Global. The index is considered an important indicator for investors who take ESG criteria into account when making investment decisions.
