I’m Adele Stafford, Vice President of Customer Success, here at Higg.
Thanks for joining us to learn more about Higg –
Who we are, what we do, and how our platform can serve you.
So let’s dig in.
Higg helps you understand environmental and social impact across your entire business’s value chain.
Perhaps you want to understand which of your suppliers produce the highest carbon emissions.
Or you need to find a fiber that consumes less water.
Or maybe you want to quantify the impact of a product all the way to end of use.
Our platform can help you with all of these needs.
We can provide you with primary data about manufacturers, offer you comprehensive data sets on the impact of materials, or, help you gather new data from your own supply chain partners.
I’m now going to introduce you to my colleague Jose Guizzardi, who’s going to walk us through a demonstration of our platform.
Thank you Adele, I’m Jose Guizzardi, I’m the Senior Sales Manager at Higg.
Our platform is designed around our measurement tools.
Also known as the Higg Index, it was developed as a suite of measurement tools with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, to provide a standardized methodology of measuring value chain sustainability.
For example, let’s take a look at the Facilities Environmental Module.
This assessment measures key impact categories such as energy, water, waste, and emissions, and facilities complete this module once a year, helping brands measure and compare results year after year.
You can see here the results both for the self assessment and for the verified modules.
Another powerful measurement tool is our Product Module.
The Product Module estimates the total environmental impact of a specific product from the raw material extraction in the view of materials going through the manufacturing processes all the way to product care and the end of the use of the product.
Additional tools enable primary measurement of brand and retail operations, social and labor practices at facilities, and environmental impact of specific materials through the Materials Sustainability Index.
With the primary data you’ve collected through the measurement tools, our platform helps organize your performance and impact data to help you really understand each step of the value chain.
Analytics enables year over year comparisons of environmental data in key assessment categories such as greenhouse gas emissions and water.
You can use Analytics to identify performance hotspots in your value chain and make strategic improvements.
You’re also able to download all of this data in the graphics for internal reporting as well.
Lastly, Higg also lets you publish and share your performance with key stakeholders – from board members to consumers.
For example, we’ve recently launched a new way for brands to publish impact on a specific product.
With data-backed scorecards that can be embedded or linked to from their e-commerce platforms.
This is really a new level of transparency that brands are able to provide to consumers, with all brands following the same methodology and verification methods.
Thanks so much, Jose.
And this is just a high level overview of what Higg can do for you.
We look forward to hearing more about your business and how Higg can support your sustainability goals.
Thanks for joining us.
