The Higg Brand and Retail Module (Higg BRM) is a holistic, sustainability tool that standardizes how brands and retailers measure and evaluate their environmental and social performance and identify improvement actions. It is part of a suite of tools and complements the Higg Product and Facilities Tool by following the lifecycle of a product through the value chain of a company’s operations. Higg BRM supports companies’ efforts to identify enhancement opportunities, drive change and communicate and share performance with key stakeholders, including supply chain partners. The annual self-assessment is supported by a Verification Program to ensure the Higg BRM data provided and shared through the Higg.org platform is credible, trusted, and therefore able to be communicated publicly.

ELEVATE is proud to be an Approved Verifier for the Higg BRM. ELEVATE was a part of the Higg BRM pilot implemented in 2020, and a leading partner to help the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) develop and launch the Higg BRM, including the provision of support on the social indicators criteria and the How to Higg Guidance Manual.
