Boost productivity and profit
Accurately measuring social and environmental impacts with the Higg Index builds capacity to innovate and saves costs by revealing new ways to manage materials and natural resources.

Sustainability is about having the heart for sustainability and doing the right thing for your company, taking it across the value chain. The SAC has helped us align the supply chain with what the brands want, with what we are doing well, and what we need to do more. We are happy to say all our factories have the Higg tools in operation. I’d like to see more of the manufacturers because they need to participate in this holistic journey.
