From our early days with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to today, here is our origin story and the players involved.

The SAC and The Higg Index

In 2009, Patagonia and Walmart formed a nonprofit industry association called the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) to reduce the environmental and social footprint of the apparel & footwear industries at scale.

10 years and 250+ thought leaders later, the SAC is ever growing and expanding into a global joint effort. Happily for the planet, many people want to solve this problem.

We gathered everyone’s knowledge to make the universal sustainability scale, called the Higg Index, to measure and improve impact from cradle to cradle.

Why Higg Co

In 2019, Higg Co spun off to become the technical powerhouse behind the SAC.

As a technology company, Higg Co focuses on building the tools that power sustainability measurement. Separation allows us to build solutions rapidly, meeting the evolving needs of our customers.

We envision Higg Co as a vehicle of global change for massive environmental, social, and labor impact across manufacturing sectors.
