HUGO BOSS strictly follows recognized standards for animal welfare and biodiversity, such as the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. The company has also collaborated with animal welfare organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for many years, to achieve improvements in animal welfare.
Last but not least, HUGO BOSS endeavors to replace animal materials with substitutes. For its efforts – such as the HUGO Menswear “Merat” parka – HUGO BOSS received the Vegan Fashion Award from PETA Germany in 2017. In 2020, we presented the first BOSS Menswear vegan suit that PETA Germany certified with the “PETA-Approved Vegan” label.
