The SAC has partnered with the Carbon Performance Improvement Initiative (CPI2), an initiative of retailers and brands aiming to be frontrunners in climate protection. The CPI2 tools help Higg Index users to achieve improved outputs and more sustainable results. Through this partnership, Higg Index users have access to a comprehensive set of tools that fosters environmental improvements on a global scale. Using Higg Index scores as a benchmark, CPI2‘s web-based tools help Higg Index users to make adjustments at their facilities. They can gradually reduce harmful environmental effects in their supply chains and drive performance improvement within the value chain.
CPI2's tools make optimizing the use of energy, water and chemicals easier for any factory. Ten percent of energy and water consumption can be saved by simple measures at no or low costs. Systematic use of CPI2 can also help improve health and safety standards in chemical use.
