Tool Access And Subscriptions

Higg is a subscription-based software platform.

Users choose from subscriptions designed for their type of business: for instance a facility/manufacturer, or a brand/retailer. 

Subscriptions include access to specific assessment tools and related features, as well as the ability to share data with other platform users. Subscriptions last for a single annual reporting cycle.  

1. Facility Subscription Plans

In September 2021, Higg introduced a simpler way to access facility tools to provide better value to facility users. Higg’s new facility subscriptions meet facilities where they are in their sustainability journey and provide them with everything they need for a reporting period, available for a single annual fee. Instead of purchasing individual modules, multiple assessments, and verification services throughout the year, facility users can now purchase a year’s worth of tools at once.

Please note, FEM2021 verification is available for purchase in January 2022.

Transferring Your SLCP Verification Data from Other Accredit Hosts

5. Additional Services and Add-Ons

APIs Overview

With Higg API access, users can integrate platform data into their internal systems (whether custom solutions or third-party software).

We offer APIs for our facility assessment data as well as our materials sustainability index, to enable your designers, managers, and sustainability teams to easily make more informed decisions.

Materials API

With the materials API, your designers and sustainability stakeholders can choose from over 200+ raw materials in the MSI, with material impacts values automatically sent to your Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems:

  • Global Warming
  • Water Scarcity
  • Fossil Fuel Depletion
  • Water Consumption
  • Biogenic Carbon

Assessments API

For brands managing larger amounts of data, our API allows you to configure automated flows into your supplier management system – from assessment tools including FEM, FSLM, and BRM.

Compared to working with individual CSVs and manual integration, this can be a tremendous time saver for certain brands.
