= a standard of best practices in the sustainability arena from the Sustainable Apparel Coalition.


"The Higg Index ... (is) ... designed to measure sustainability across the entire supply chain, the index evaluates three different modules: the brand module, the product module, and the facilities module. The brand module looks at how a company’s practices and policies could impact product sustainability (i.e. whether a company designs for durability, if they use restricted chemical substances, whether they have practices in place to reduce packaging). The product module examines the sustainability of different materials and product coatings, among other things. And the facilities module looks at energy, water, and waste performance as well as facilities management."
