Measure

Our measurement tools help you gather accurate impact data from each step of your value chain – from materials and product design, to manufacturing and facilities, all the way to the environment impact of your brand and retail operations. 

Across environmental and social impacts, Higg factory assessment tools enable consistent primary data gathering across your entire manufacturing base – and it’s easy to request existing assessment data from facilities that are already Higg users. Similarly, the brand and retail tool enables data gathering within company operations such as transportation, offices, and retail centers.

For designers, product developers, and analysts, Higg Product Design Tools measure environmental impact across the full lifecycle of a product – from materials all the way to product end-of-life, including packaging, logistics, product durability, and care. In particular, the materials sustainability index provides a dataset of materials impacts, which helps to understand the costs, benefits, and tradeoffs of different materials (for instance, comparing a recycled fiber to its conventional counterpart).

Features include:
  • Assess carbon emissions, water use, energy sources, and more at facilities
  • Measure social impacts of manufacturing, such as wages, working hours, and safety
  • Estimate the total impact of a particular product
  • Compare the environmental impact of different materials during design
  • Measure impact of corporate operations, including packaging, transportation, and retail

Manage

Higg’s data management tools organize your performance and impact data, to help develop actionable insights about your value chain. 

With access to the Higg analytics tool, you can surface insights quickly about supplier performance in GHG emissions, water use, management approaches, and more. Drill down to identify areas of risk and opportunity by filtering the dashboard by country, tier, and custom tags. Performance data can uncover facilities operating without a chemical license, using the most water, or emitting the most carbon, for example. 

And use our benchmarking feature to compare your manufacturing partners’ assessments with other similar factories in the industry.

Additionally, our data management tools allow you to track assessment completion by factory partners. Use automated communications and reminder messages to encourage completion of mandatory assessments, in order to gather the most accurate possible view of your impact.

Features include:
  • Visualize supplier performance
  • Surface insights and hotspots
  • Compare your facilities to benchmarks
  • Download raw data for additional analysis
  • Monitor and encourage assessment completion
