Higg vs ESG

What are the relations and differences between the Higg index reporting and ESG reporting?

Higg Index reporting

The Higg Index is a suite of sustainability assessment tools that helps businesses measure, manage, and communicate the environmental and social impacts of their textile and footwear products. The Index is focused on the specific impacts of the textile and footwear industry, such as water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste generation.

ESG reporting

ESG reporting is a broader framework that assesses businesses' environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. ESG reporting considers a broader range of factors than the Higg Index, including climate change, resource scarcity, labour practices, human rights, and corporate governance.

Relations between Higg Index reporting and ESG reporting

The Higg Index and ESG reporting are complementary tools that can be used together to assess the sustainability performance of businesses in the textile and footwear industry. The Higg Index provides detailed information on textile and footwear products' environmental and social impacts, while ESG reporting provides a broader overview of the company's sustainability performance.
