All HUGO BOSS suppliers pledge to comply with the HUGO BOSS Supplier Code of Conduct. They also contain environmental standards. The environment module of the Global Social Compliance Program (GSCP) forms the foundation for analyzing and improving environmental protection in the supply chain. To this end, HUGO BOSS has worked on optimizing the GSCP Open Source environmental program for many years, in collaboration with the GSCP and other experts. The aim is always to develop improved, uniform standards worldwide.
In the framework of GSCP environmental audits, HUGO BOSS requires its suppliers to provide information about environment-related aspects. The suppliers provide details about their energy and water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste water and waste generation, for example. They also indicate which measures they are taking to avoid harmful substances and which environment management systems they use.
If a partner fails to satisfy the demands of HUGO BOSS, the company draws up corrective action plans, aimed at rectifying the insufficiencies. Extensive information about the audits conducted and their results is available in the HUGO BOSS Sustainability Report.
