Unlock a complete view of your environmental & social impact

Higg is the sustainability insights platform for consumer goods industries, delivering software and services for measuring, managing, and sharing supply chain performance data.

Built on a common standard for sustainability

From materials to products, from facilities to stores, across energy, waste, water, and working conditions, Higg unlocks a complete view of your business’s social and environmental impact. 

And because our software tools are built on a standardized framework for supply chain measurement, you can trust that your insights are credible and actionable.

Turn measurement into performance

Want to understand which supplier produces the fewest emissions? Need to find a fiber that consumes less water? Want to quantify the cradle-to-gate impact of a new product? 

Higg provides the comprehensive intelligence needed to accelerate individual and industry transformation.

Trusted by the world’s leading brands

Higg is used by brands, retailers, and manufacturers across the globe: from large retailers to independent brands, from suppliers in India to mills in Portugal.

Our platform enables each to assess the impact of their choices – and to share that data with partners, NGOs, and customers as part of their overall sustainability strategies.

Sustainability is no longer optional.
