Sustainable Apparel Coalition

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition is the apparel, footwear and textile industry’s leading alliance for sustainable production. Our vision is of an apparel, footwear and textiles industry that produces no unnecessary environmental harm and has a positive impact on the people and communities associated with its activities. The Coalition develops the Higg Index, a set of standardised supply chain measurement tools for all industry participants. The Higg Index includes facility, brand and product tools that measure environmental and social labor impacts across the supply chain. The Sustainable Apparel Coalition continues to grow, representing apparel, footwear and textile industry members with combined annual apparel and footwear revenues exceeding $500 billion. With the Higg Index the industry is addressing inefficiencies resolving damaging practices and working to achieve the environmental and social transparency consumers are demanding. By joining forces we are addressing the urgent systemic challenges that are impossible to change alone.
