Target uses Higg to change their environmental standards
End-to-end value chain sustainability
Target is a longstanding user of Higg, having used our platform to track its environmental impact since 2012. Across the value chain, Higg has helped stakeholders align on the company’s environmental standards and track progress.
Target first began by asking business partners and their factories producing Target-brand products to use the Higg Index self-assessment. The results are now part of their business partners’ annual scorecards. In 2020, Target began to require the Higg FEM self-assessment for all factories in scope of their Responsible Sourcing Program, as a part of doing business with Target.
Target looks forward to working alongside the industry to scale this work, “so we can start to move from being less bad to being truly restorative,” explains Durrant.
