In preparation of the 2018 assessment, BSD evaluated selected topics regarding improvement potential but also regarding new requirements and methodological changes. Then, concrete proposals were defined. These were directed towards both disclosure quality and specific management systems (performance rating).
Subsequently, the proposals’ short and midterm feasibility was discussed with HUGO BOSS and summarized in an action plan.
In September 2018, HUGO BOSS was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World for the second consecutive year.
RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment / Dow Jones Sustainability Index – Analysis of potential for improvement and recommendations for action for HUGO BOSS
February 2018 - March 2018
HUGO BOSS was first included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World in 2017. Launched in 1999, the DJSI World is the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven companies based on RobecoSAM’s analysis of financially material Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors and S&P DJI’s robust index methodology. The aim of the conducted workshop was to identify gaps in comparison to best practice examples and in this way lay the foundations for an improvement of the rating.
