BOULDER, CO (PRWEB) June 11, 2015
Mosaic Sustainability announced today that it will host an upcoming webinar on the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s (SAC) Higg Index and the work the Boulder-based firm has performed with hundreds of suppliers across more than 25 countries. The webinar will be held on June 22.
The Higg Index represents a giant step forward for sustainability in the apparel and footwear industries. Developed by the SAC, an industry association with representatives from brands, retailers, manufacturers, and other stakeholders, the Higg Index assesses material impacts across the environmental and social spectrum. Numerous brands and manufacturers now use the Higg Index Environmental Facility Module to assess and compare sustainability performance and improvement opportunities throughout the value chain.
Although the Higg Index provides a valuable first step in helping suppliers to measure impacts, further action is required. Since 2009, Mosaic Sustainability has been working with brands and suppliers to help identify actionable opportunities to address the most significant supply chain risks and impacts. The June 22 webinar will present attendees with a snapshot of Mosaic’s work and what the firm has learned by analyzing nearly 1000 Higg Index responses and leveraging open-source data to drive material action.
The webinar is co-presented by Ryan Young of Indicate Advisory Services. Young is the former vice president of the Higg Index and was responsible for leading the development of two iterations of the assessment tool.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Ryan Young on this webinar,” said Matt Wood, Managing Director of Mosaic Sustainability. “The Higg Index presents an outstanding opportunity for apparel and footwear companies to begin to gain true insight into their value chain’s impact, and supporting suppliers in making changes to decrease that impact is one of our core business offerings.”
Mosaic Sustainability is a boutique firm specializing in data-driven sustainability measurement, analysis, reporting, and planning. The company’s extensive portfolio includes hundreds of suppliers across a variety of industries as well as some of the largest companies in the world.
