NEW YORK - The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) has responded to a highly critical article in the New York Times which accused the SAC's Higg Index of "strongly favouring" fossil fuel-based synthetic textiles over natural fibres.

The influential newspaper accused the SAC, which owns the Higg Index and develops the tools with its technology partner, Higg, of using data based on misleading lifecycle assessment (LCA) reports and on research funded by the synthetics industry.

In a statement on the SAC website, the organisation's CEO Amina Razvi, welcomed the "scrutiny" but claimed the article contained inaccuracies and did not offer any better solution than that provided by the Higg Index suite of tools.
