Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC)
The Sustainable Apparel Coalition is a trade organization comprising brands, retailers, manufacturers, government, and non-governmental organizations and academic experts. It represents more than a third of the global apparel and footwear market. The Coalition is working to reduce the environmental and social impacts of apparel and footwear products around the world.
The focus of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition is the Higg Index -- a suite of assessment tools that standardizes the measurement of the environmental and social impacts of apparel and footwear products across the product lifecycle and throughout the value chain. This tool allows the industry to make better decisions, improve the supply chain quality and reduce the impact on the global environment.
Huntsman Textile Effects is one of the Founding Circle members and one of the first chemical manufacturers to join the SAC. With our long heritage in sustainability and our proven track record in innovation, we are committed to collaborating with other leaders to lead improvements across the whole textile value chain.
