Candidate Members

SAC Candidate membership provides medium to large companies a pathway to full membership, allowing them to collaborate and learn from industry leaders committed to transforming business for exponential impact.

Businesses join as Candidate members to gain access to the SAC global community and the Higg Index suite of tools and to focus on further developing their sustainability initiatives.

The membership period for Candidate members is two years. After two years, Candidate members may become Corporate Full members committing to SAC membership requirements and best practices in adoption, verification, transparency, and impact using the Higg Index.

Tchibo is excited to join the SAC as the first Candidate member. In the journey towards net-zero we are at a time where the industry needs to increase efforts to bring down GHG emissions to reach the 1,5 °C target. The collection of primary and standardized data is essential to increase our efforts towards environmental challenges in our supply chains. Solutions need to be tailor-made and adapted to the specific and individual needs of our partners. 

Knowing the majority of our suppliers are already using the SAC tools, we can seize the opportunity to connect with them and jointly implement measures that help build a sustainable, safer and environmentally-friendly production. The Candidate membership gives us the chance to be part of the community while at the same time have the flexibility to evaluate the tools’ applicability for our business before adapting them at full scale.
