For increased biodiversity on our planet

We are committed to protecting biodiversity on our planet as a fundamental prerequisite for an intact ecosystem. We, at HUGO BOSS, mainly incorporate natural raw materials such as cotton and wool, in our products. This, also, underlines our dependence on biodiversity. At the same time, our business activities, in particular, the production of raw materials and the manufacturing of our products, have an impact on the environment. Consequently, we have made biodiversity one of our priorities in sustainability management. We are committed to preserving biodiversity by taking measures such as reducing our emissions, implementing responsible chemical management, using more sustainable materials, closing materials cycles, and encouraging animal welfare.


Our targets pay off on biodiversity

Reduction of CO2 emissions in the entire value chain (Scope 1-3, compared to 2018)
Target by 2050: Net Zero emissions
of suppliers with a high environmental impact comply with our environmental requirements
Target by 2025: 100%
of the product range consists of RESPONSIBLE styles
Target by 2025: ≥60%
Our forests are of great importance to people, the environment and animals. They preserve the global water and material cycles, the climate and the preservation of biological diversity. At the same time, they are also an important source of raw materials. Paper plays an important role in our packaging materials. In addition, wood is also a basic material for selected textiles: fibers such as viscose, modal and lyocell are derived from wood. In collaboration with the environmental organization Canopy, we have therefore committed not to source from the world’s ancient and endangered forests and set out to source these materials as sustainably as possible. When sourcing these materials, for example, we rely on optimized recycled content, certified sources and sustainable alternative solutions. We have set out our targets and measures in our Commitment to Protect Forests Through Our Paper, Packaging and Fabrics Choices.
