Sustainability is a firm part of the Group strategy
HUGO BOSS defines sustainability as the interplay of quality, innovation and responsibility and has integrated it as a firm part of its Group strategy. The Company thus acknowledges the economic, ecological and social impact of its actions and, at the same time, bases the success of its business on them. The guiding principle “we act responsibly” seeks to generate value for the Company, its employees, shareholders, customers, business partners and society. Customers expect high-quality products but also compliance with demanding social and environmental standards. By addressing these expectations on an equal footing, HUGO BOSS creates an essential basis for customer loyalty and innovative capacity.
Inclusion in DJSI World for the first time underscores the progress being made in implementing the sustainability strategy
The six fields of action we, environment, employees, partners, products and society provide the framework for the sustainability strategy of HUGO BOSS. The Group aims to continuously improve in all fields of action and, accordingly, has set itself ambitious objectives. Sustainability ratings act as an objective indicator of the progress achieved. HUGO BOSS was added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World for the first time in 2017. It was ranked “industry best” in the categories of environmental reporting, labor practice indicators, product stewardship and tax strategy. In total, the Group ranks among the best three companies of the industry. The inclusion in DJSI World underscores the success of the Group’s sustainability activities over the last few years. Sustainability aspects form a fixed component of long-term management compensation. Compensation Report
