Sustainable Apparel Coalition launches Higg Index

Written by Haydn Davis

altSAN FRANCISCO – The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), a trade association comprised of brands, retailers, manufacturers, government and non-governmental organizations and academic experts has officially launched its long-awaited version 1.0 tool for sustainability measurement across the industry value chain.

Now known as the Higg Index, the tool was developed by the SAC’s membership and is based on established evaluation tools – including the Outdoor Industry Association’s Eco Index and Nike’s Material Assessment Tool – to better measure the comprehensive environmental and social impacts of apparel and footwear products.
