HUGO BOSS has always used high-quality materials and processing techniques – as a prerequisite for ensuring long-lasting products. Wherever quality aspects permit it, we make sure to choose more sustainable materials. The ultimate goal is to achieve innovative, sustainable product solutions that unleash the full potential of HUGO BOSS. Advocating for appropriate animal husbandry and breeding practices is a natural part of this strategy.
To make well-founded decisions as part of our sustainable materials strategies, we have conducted an extensive natural capital evaluation of all our materials.
We work constantly on implementing these material strategies, in cooperation with international initiatives such as the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) and the Leather Working Group (LWG) and in close partnership with our suppliers.
In line with its responsible Product Policy, HUGO BOSS has formulated roadmaps with time targets for our most frequently used materials. Among other things, they describe the environmental and social impacts of materials along the supply chain and define criteria for more sustainable procurement and product development. In order to be able to make well-founded decisions on ecological aspects of our sustainable material strategies, we have, for example, carried out a comprehensive natural capital assessment of our materials. The Material Policy sets out the precise criteria for all materials that must be met in order to be considered responsible. We mark products that contain at least 60% or more sustainably sourced raw materials with a RESPONSIBLE hangtag. Since HUGO BOSS is constantly striving to improve in this area, this roadmap is continuously being developed to make current progress visible to the customer step by step.
