Higg Index - Facility Environmental Module
Part of SAC - Sustainable Apparel Coalition
Manufacturers use the Higg Facility Tools to measure the social and environmental performance of their facilities.
These modules measure impacts at individual factories, not the parent company as a whole. Users conduct the assessments at least once a year, and these assessments are then verified by SAC-approved, on-site assessors. Benchmarking by facility type allows facility managers to compare their performance against that of their peers.
