Brands and retailers play a key role in driving sustainable practices in the apparel, footwear, and textile industry. The Higg Brand & Retail Module (Higg BRM) guides them on their sustainability journeys and identifies hotspots and opportunities for improvement along their global value chain.
Working to Protect People and the Planet
Businesses of all sizes can use the Higg BRM to measure the environmental and social impacts of their value chain.
From materials sourcing to a product’s end of use, the Higg BRM assesses the following life cycle stages of a product as it goes through a company’s operations, identifying sustainability risks and impacts:
- Management System
- Supply Chain
- Use & End of Use
- Retail Stores
- Distribution Centers
Connecting Value Chain Partners
By using the Higg BRM, conscientious businesses can track, measure, and share their sustainability progress with value chain partners, consumers, investors, and other key stakeholders.
Developed by the industry, this trusted assessment helps brands and retailers establish and maintain strong corporate social responsibility strategies and practices that promote the well-being of workers and the planet.
