Norwegian outdoor clothing brand, Helly Hansen has joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC). The company will use the Higg Index, the sustainability measurement tool of SAC, to drive environmental responsibility across its supply chain. SAC formed by sustainability leaders and organisations addresses the current social and environmental challenges.

With its membership in the SAC, Helly Hansen joins over 180 global brands, retailers and manufacturers, as well as government, non-profit environmental organisations, and academic institutions, which are collectively committed to improving supply chain sustainability in the apparel and footwear industries.

“We are pleased to be joining the SAC confident, it will have a positive impact on product sustainability over time, and become a model for how industries can collaborate in making a positive impact on value chain performance," said Richard Collier, chief product officer at Helly Hansen.

In its relationship with the SAC, Helly Hansen will contribute both data and resources to support the Higg Index, which gauges environmental sustainability and drives supply chain decision-making to better efficiency and sustainability impact. The Higg Index is an open source, indicator-based tool that allows suppliers, manufacturers, brands and retailers to evaluate materials, products, facilities and processes based on environmental and product design choices.

“We welcome the addition of Helly Hansen to the Coalition, and look forward to their participation in this industry-wide effort in sustainability,” said Coalition CEO Jason Kibbey. “Having Helly Hansen as part of the Coalition widens the scope of our impact within the apparel industry and accelerates the change we’re making towards responsible industry actions.”

There are currently over 170 members of the SAC, the majority of which are global brands and retailers including Adidas, C&A, Gap, H&M, Kohl’s, Levi’s, Macy’s, Nike, Puma, REI, Target, and VF Corporation. (RR)
