HUGO BOSS response

HUGO BOSS operates one of the textile industry's most modern production facilities in Izmir, Turkey. The plant offers excellent working conditions, with well over ninety percent of our employees there confirming in an anonymous survey that they are very satisfied with their jobs.

Within the framework of our partnership with the Fair Labor Association (FLA), a social audit was conducted at our production plant in Izmir. Needless to say, HUGO BOSS has taken the comments and other recommendations issuing from the audit very seriously. The majority of these issues raised during the FLA SCI audit have been addressed and are almost completely solved. In terms of the concerns of mistreating freedom of association HUGO BOSS is actually engaged with a third party mediator in order to solve this issue. Nevertheless it has to be mentioned that HUGO BOSS supports and set the floor for freedom of association within its entire global supply chain but we remain neutral when it comes to specific unions.
