The Sustainable Apparel Coalition Inc. (SAC) is an industry-wide group of more than 250 leading apparel, footwear, and textile, brands, retailers, suppliers, service providers, trade associations, nonprofits, NGOs, and academic institutions working to reduce environmental impact and promote social justice throughout the global value chain.
Leveraging the Higg Index suite of tools and programs for the standardized measurement of value chain sustainability, the SAC is working to transform business for exponential impact.
As the organization scales its products, services, and associated impact, Acre is delighted to support the SAC on a number of key hires over the next 12 months which will play a critical role in delivering the SAC’s mission.
SAC has three guiding principles:
Don’t let perfect get in the way of good enough - push forward, test ideas, revamp them, test them again, but don’t lose momentum.
Build on the best of existing work - Instead of starting with a blank page, the new coalition began by adapting an “Eco-Index” that had been developed over several years.
Discuss, then decide - If principled or paramount objectives arise, these issues are addressed. Otherwise, the Coalition moves forward.
The Sustainable Apparel Coalition is a groundbreaking industry collaboration. Our members are committed to making transformational change. By scaling the Higg Index globally, we are driving the social and environmental improvements the industry needs to become sustainable.
