The Higg Index
It is a Self-assessment tool developed by Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) that businesses can measure their own environmental performance. Higg is a verification method, not an audit.
Higg FEM is a tool used to measure the environmental and product sustainability performance of factories and to score them as a result. Higg FEM provides facilities with a clear picture of their environmental impact. It helps them identify and prioritize opportunities for performance improvements.
With the Higg FEM (Factory Environment Module), manufacturers can evaluate their environmental performance and share the results with interested parties.
