The Sustainable Apparel Coalition has launched Higg Co, a for profit tech spin that will develop Higg Index technology and make it available for all Higg Index customers. Higg Co. will improve and enhance the experience of using the Higg Index and deliver technology for the robust Higg product roadmap ahead.
The Higg Index is a suite of sustainability assessment tools used globally by brands, retailers and manufacturers to measure the environmental and social performance of a company or product. SAC will focus on bringing members together to learn from each other and drive performance improvement, as well as focus on the Higg Index Product Roadmap, including developing questions and content in the self-assessments and verified assessments in the Higg Index suite of tools. The SAC will also manage the Higg Index Verification Program.
