To date, a total of around 90 companies have signed the industry-wide 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment, in which they commit to promoting closed loops in the textile industry, together with HUGO BOSS. The life cycle of the products is extended by returning them to the material cycle at the end of their life, for example, through recycling.
To achieve this goal, the foundation must already be laid in the design phase. This phase determines whether recyclable materials will be used and whether a garment can be broken down into its individual components again at the end of its life. In its Circular Design Strategy, HUGO BOSS is focusing on integrating circular design principles in its collection briefings and train its employees for the design, development, and procurement processes accordingly by 2020.
