SAC HIGG Index Verification

Driving Collaboration on Sustainability

WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE APPAREL COALITION (SAC)


The SAC was formed in March 2011 and is a multi-stakeholder group composed of leaders in the global apparel industry. It currently (as of November 2017) has over 200 members, consisting of brands, retailers, manufactures or facilities, non-profits, governments, service providers, trade associations, and academic institutions. SAC members have committed to working together to reduce the environmental and social impacts of apparel and footwear products around the world.
  

WHAT IS HIGG INDEX VERIFICATION FOR FACILITIES?

The focus of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition is the development and use of the Higg Index: a suite of self-assessment tools designed to measure the sustainability impacts of apparel and footwear products. At the facility level, there are two modules: the Environmental Facility Module and the Social/Labour Facility Module-Beta. Specifically, the facility tools are primarily used by manufactures and facilities but can also be shared with sourcing, brands, and retailers.
