Technology Builders

The agile technology used to measure and systematically improve your supply chain impact. Higg has exclusive licensing use of the Higg Index.

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 accurate measurement and full visibility into a product’s impact, we believe that the sustainable transformation industries 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 accessible digital platform to enable brands, retailers, and manufacturers to accelerate individual and collective transformation.

Our Story

In 2009, Patagonia and Walmart formed the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, a nonprofit industry association dedicated to collective solutions for reducing the environmental and social footprint of the apparel and footwear industries. A core focus of the SAC has been the development of the Higg Index, a suite of tools for the standardized measurement of supply chain sustainability. 

Higg was spun out of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition in 2019 as a public-benefit technology company. As the the exclusive licensee of the Higg Index, Higg develops digital tools and resources to scale its adoption across the world.

“The urgency and complexity of the climate crisis is simply too large for any single organization to solve alone. We need the collective action of partnership and the speed and scale of technology if we are going to reverse the harmful impacts of human activity on the environment.”
