Bad Urach Dialog

An ongoing dialog for success
HUGO BOSS has invited at Stift Bad Urach annually since 2016. At the international “Bad Urach Dialog”, members of management meet with representatives of NGOs and trade unions, along with members of academia, partners, and experts to hold open discussions. This opens up important perspectives that are already being implemented in the sustainability strategy.

Cornerstones of strategic sustainability management

The Bad Urach Dialog 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 – including Mark Langer, CEO of HUGO BOSS, and other management representatives.

These talks are a major cornerstone of strategic sustainability management at HUGO BOSS. The inputs from past Bad Urach Dialogs, on topics such as transparency and increased involvement in initiatives and collaborations, were adopted directly in our strategic work.

Among the results from 2016 and 2017 were a focus of HUGO BOSS’ sustainability activities on clear priorities and an expansion of our engagement in important multi-stakeholder dialogs. These decisions have been incorporated directly into our sustainability strategy:

In 2018, we were again able to gain valuable impulses from discussions with the various stakeholders. This includes the wish for greater transparency regarding sustainability activities at HUGO BOSS and a further intensification of the dialog with stakeholders.
