GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Higg Index
The Higg Index
The Higg Index 2.0 is a tool to help organizations standardize how they measure and evaluate environmental performance of apparel products across the supply chain at the brand, product, and facility levels. It is:
- a self-assessment tool that enables rapid learning through identification of environmental sustainability hot spots and improvement opportunities;
- a starting point of engagement, education, and collaboration among stakeholders in advance of more rigorous assessment efforts.
The Higg Index 2.0 is a learning tool for both small and large companies to identify challenges and capture on-going improvement. It targets a spectrum of performance that allows beginners and leaders in environmental sustainability, regardless of company size, to identify opportunities.
All Higg Index content is open-source: free and available to the public. Non-members, including the general public, may access Higg Index 1.0 and 2.0 content in Excel for free by downloading them from the web site.
