Changes in sight for Hugo Boss' sustainability department after the unexpected departure of the previous CSR manager Andreas Streubig. As a consequence, Hugo Boss is restructuring its whole sustainability department and announcing the new responsibilities. In addition, a foundation has been set up to launch a major fundraising campaign.



Strategic responsibility for sustainability will be assumed by Dorothee Niebergall, senior vice president group strategy & corporate development. Operational responsibility along the supply chain goes to Ivica Maric, senior vice president business operations. Responsibility for all sustainability reporting requirements will in future lie with Christian Stöhr, vice president investor relations.




Implementation of the Claim 5 strategy
"The new organizational structure will further support the implementation of the Claim 5 strategy in the area of sustainability and the implementation of our cross-functional, end-to-end sustainable approach. Sustainability is thus firmly anchored in our business and an integral part of our processes," according to a statement from the company's headquarters in Metzingen. As a result, the area previously headed by Andreas Streubig, senior vice president global corporate responsibility & public affairs, will be completely restructured from the beginning of the year.

 



 

Five cents for every product sold
At the same time, the group announced the establishment of a charitable foundation. This is intended to extend the company's commitment to climate and environmental protection to new partners. Regional and global projects are to be supported, particularly in the areas of flood protection, climate innovations and the fight against plastic pollution. The main source of income for the new foundation will be the new "Every Purchase Counts" initiative. From January 1, Hugo Boss will donate €0.5 for each of its own products sold offline and online worldwide. Licensed products are excluded. The new Hugo Boss Stiftung GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hugo Boss AG.
