The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) brings together 300 leading apparel, footwear, and textile brands, retailers, manufacturers, sourcing agents, service providers, trade associations, NGOs, and academic institutions – all working toward a shared vision of an industry that gives back more than it takes to the planet and its people.
In order to enable systematic change, organizations need a common language to track and measure their social and environmental impacts. The Higg Index provides this solution, empowering manufacturers, brands and retailers to leverage verified data in order to continuously measure, improve and share their sustainability efforts.
