In 2011, the SAC launched the Higg Index, an indicator of the value chain measurement for retail companies, brands and facilities. The objective of the tool is to calculate and rate the social or environmental sustainability performance of a company or product.
Currently, the SAC initiative has seen the participation of more than 250 companies in 35 countries, including Asos, Centric Brands, Aldo, Abercrombie & Fitch, Camper, American Eagle, among others.
