About Higg

We’re helping consumer goods businesses accelerate transformation towards a more sustainable future.

Our Vision

We have only a decade to radically transform how humanity impacts the planet.

Yet today, no one can accurately measure the environmental and social impact of a given product – despite growing consumer demand for more sustainable choices. Without full visibility into a product’s impact, we believe that the sustainable transformation consumer goods need will remain impossible.

Higg is on a mission to change that. Bringing together decades of experience in sustainability, technology, and consumer goods, we’re building an integrated digital platform to enable brands, retailers, and manufacturers to accelerate progress.

Our Story

Higg was launched in 2019 as a public-benefit technology company, to build software for assessment methodologies developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition. Known as the Higg Index, this suite of measurement tools is the most widely used within apparel and footwear industries.

In recent years, we’ve expanded the capabilities of our platform to include advanced analytics, tracking, and disclosure tools. In addition, we’re proud to work with multiple partners across industries to integrate complementary data and technical capabilities, to provide our users with a single source for ESG performance data.
