The Higg MSI is a cradle-to-gate material scoring tool that:
- Enables companies to compare their materials against others
- Makes comparable environmental data available to the public
- Can be used to empower product development teams to make more sustainable choices during materials selection
The Higg Materials Sustainability Index (MSI) provides access to a large amount of relevant information about the impacts of material production used in the apparel, footwear, and home textile industries. You can leverage the information in different ways to get a clear understanding of what is causing different types of material impacts, and different production processes that can be used to reduce those impacts.
