The first Bangladeshi manufacturer to join the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), Denim Expert will now adopt the Higg Index to chart its CSR and sustainability progress. The company will use the group’s sustainability measurement tools to drive change throughout its supply chain. It will contribute both data and resources to support the Higg Index, which measures sustainability performance and drives supply chain transparency and decision-making to improve efficiency and sustainability impact.
Having made ethical trading a key of its marketing message, the decision to join the SAC will further enhance the reputation of Denim Expert and potentially increase its international customer base. The company sees the SAC as the organisation capable of delivering this single overarching standard for the global apparel sector. The firm currently exports to the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Turkey.
