SAC explains the Manufacturer Forums are a series of action-oriented events aimed at bringing business leaders and stakeholders together to learn how they can leverage the Higg Index suite of tools and industry programmes to drive sustainability improvements throughout global supply chains.

The first Manufacturer Forum, which is taking place later this month at China’s Sheraton Shenzhen Futian Hotel has the theme ‘Catalyst for Change’. It will feature sessions on policy, supply chain dynamics, decarbonisation, standardising facility data collection and verification.

SAC points out these forums give attendees an opportunity to understand how its member organisations work together to drive improvements in the apparel, footwear, and textile industry.

Attendees will also learn how to use the Higg Index suite of tools and stay up-to-date on recent tool updates like the FEM 4.0, which is scheduled to launch later this year. They will also learn about industry programmes such as the SAC’s newly launched decarbonisation programme.

SAC’s vice president of the Higg index Jeremy Lardeau says: “We are honoured to be hosting industry stakeholders at our Manufacturer Forum, which will provide attendees an opportunity to learn more about our work at the SAC and how to leverage our Higg index suite of tools to better understand data insights informing their sustainability strategies and how upcoming legislation will impact their operations. As an organisation committed to transforming business through ground-breaking tools and collaborative partnerships, we believe through initiatives such as the Manufacturer Forums, we can help solve the industry’s most urgent and systemic challenges.”

The SAC adds that is deeply committed to collaboration and its goal is to offer solution-centred discussions to drive social and environmental impacts.
