Higg: The Sustainability Insights Platform

Higg is an integrated software platform that helps you take responsibility for your business’ entire impact – from materials to products, from factories to stores, across energy, waste, water, and working conditions.

A universe of data for a better world

Our comprehensive network of primary impact data gathers and organizes the information you need to make each step of your supply chain more sustainable.

Higg is the exclusive licensee of the Higg Index, the industry-leading supply chain measurement methodology developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition

Turn measurement into performance

Want to understand which supplier produces the fewest emissions? Need to find a fiber that consumes less water? Want to quantify the cradle-to-gate impact of a new product? 

Higg provides the comprehensive intelligence needed to move from insights to action. 

Trusted by the world’s leading brands

Higg is used by brands, retailers, and manufacturers across the globe: from large retailers to independent brands, from suppliers in India to mills in Portugal.

Our platform enables each to assess the impact of their choices – and to share that data with partners, NGOs, and customers as part of their overall sustainability strategies.

Sustainability is no longer optional.


Consumers who’d switch from their preferred brand for a more environmentally and socially friendly.


In upside for the world economy, if the apparel & footwear industry make more sustainable choices.


Shortfall in supply and demand of water by 2030.

“Before the Higg MSI, there was no tool that had common life-cycle assessment criteria, methodology, and procedure specially created for the textile industry, and developed through global, industry-wide consensus. The Higg MSI is quite meaningful for the industry, because materials largely impact the sustainability of textile products.” ​
