Spectre implementing Higg Index tools
In 2019 we have started using the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s (SAC) Higg Index FEM tool to report about environmental conditions of our factories in both Vietnam and Latvia, and from 2020 we have implemented the FSLM tool to report about social and labor conditions of our factory in Vietnam.
About the Higg Index
*1 The Sustainable Apparel Coalition has developed the Higg Index, a standardized value chain measurement suite of tools for all industry participants. These tools measure environmental and social labor impacts across the value chain. With this data, the industry can identify hotspots, improve sustainability performance, and achieve the environmental and social transparency consumers are demanding. By joining forces in a coalition, systemic challenges that are impossible to change alone can be addressed.
The Higg Index is a suite of tools that enables brands, retailers, and facilities of all sizes — at every stage in their sustainability journey — to accurately measure and score a company or product’s sustainability performance. The Higg Index delivers a holistic overview that empowers businesses to make meaningful improvements that protect the well-being of factory workers, local communities, and the environment.
The vision of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition:
The Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s 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.
