The international Stakeholder Dialog of HUGO BOSS gives interest groups and organizations an opportunity to present their perspective of the company’s sustainability work and speak directly with the persons responsible at HUGO BOSS. In the past years, some 20 external stakeholders took part at each event, along with internal experts from different departments at the company.
These talks are a major cornerstone of strategic sustainability management at HUGO BOSS. We take the opinions of our stakeholders very seriously. In the past, the stakeholder dialogues have given impetus to important issues. For example, the exchange is used to reposition the company's strategic focus and to reflect the results of the materiality analysis, among other things.
At the fourth international Stakeholder Dialog in 2019, participants discussed the challenges of the future under the motto "Ready for Change?", faced critical voices and exchanged views on possible solutions. This showed, for example, that HUGO BOSS has even more potential to approach customers with the topic of sustainability. Many existing contacts with stakeholders, such as scientific institutions, were further intensified.
