We are delighted to support the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) with new tools and services aimed at complementing the Higg Index suite of tools. These services will increase supply chain engagement and insight into supply chain impacts, and directly support the SAC’s vision of an apparel, footwear and home textiles industry that produces no unnecessary environmental harm and has a positive impact on the people and communities associated with its activities.
“Partnering with Anthesis to offer these services to our members and their supply chain partners helps us to drive Higg Adoption throughout the value chain, derive greater insight from Higg data and widen the scope of our impact within the apparel industry,” said Amina Razvi, VP of Membership at the Sustainable Apparel Coalition.
In collaboration with the SAC, Anthesis has developed the following services for SAC members and other Higg Index users:
1. Higg Index Adoption services
Organizations seeking to drive usage of the Higg Index in their supply chain will benefit from a coordinated Higg Adoption outreach to suppliers from around the globe. Anthesis will provide management and monitoring of supplier progress from end to end as well as interactive dashboards to illustrate engagement and adoption rates at an individual factory level.
2. Higg Index Advanced analytics
Through the aggregation and collation of Higg Index assessment responses, Anthesis will provide retailers, brands and manufacturers with actionable insights into the performance of their supply chains. Displaying the results and trends in dashboard form and providing benchmarking for Higg Index scores and key metrics will enable more strategic engagement with suppliers and their customers on key impact areas.
Of the partnership with SAC Anthesis said:
“We are immensely pleased to be able to offer these services to users of the Higg Index. It is very important that the value of the reported data is effectively realized. We have worked with SAC members for several years to maximize the value of supplier engagement so we have been well placed to develop this solution."
