January 19, 2015 - HUGO BOSS has been listed as Industry Mover for the first time in the RobecoSam Sustainability Yearbook. An industry mover is a company that performs within the top 15% of its industry and demonstrates the largest improvement in its sustainability performance in comparison to the previous year.
HUGO BOSS has thus proven to be “strongly positioned to create long-term shareholder value” and is therefore a promising candidate in the area of sustainable management within the textiles sector.
