Jeanologia, the Spanish company leader in development of sustainable and efficient technology, has joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC). The company leading transformation in textile industry, will use the group’s sustainability measurement suite of tools, the Higg Index, to drive environmental and social responsibility throughout its supply chain.

In its relationship with the SAC, Jeanologia will contribute both data and resources to support the Higg Index, which measures sustainability performance and drives supply chain transparency and decision-making to improve efficiency and sustainability impact. The Higg Index is an indicator-based suite of tools that enables suppliers, manufacturers, brands, and retailers to evaluate materials, products, facilities, and processes based on environmental performance, social labor practices, and product design choices.

With its membership in the SAC, Jeanologia has joined more than 220 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, footwear, and textile industry.

"The transformation of the textile industry into a more sustainable one needs to be done by bringing together all industry stakeholders. SAC is doing so setting up the necessary standards to measure sustainability performance of the complex textile manufacturing process," Begoña García, Jeanologia R&D sustainable process team, said.

"We, as part of this fascinating industry, want to join this transformation journey. Being part of the SAC we have the opportunity to strength our compromise with the environment and the people and participate in setting up the rules for a real and effective change," added García.

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