Higg Index tool now opened up to non-members

Written by John Mowbray

SAN FRANCISCO –  The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) has opened up its proprietary suite of Higg Index tools to non-member small and medium-sized (SME) brands and retailers through a new, special licensing option called the SME Access program. The move comes in a bid to collect a much wider variety of assessment data on environmental impacts and to boost adoption of the Higg right across the global textile supply chain. As of July 1st, the SAC also reports that so far over 13,000 Higg Index assessments have been posted by over 6,000 companies worldwide.
