In 2017 Benetton Group joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), the alliance promoting sustainable production, including fashion, footwear and textile brands.
As SAC members, starting from 2018 we are using the Higg Index, i.e. a series of tools that allow to measure not only supply chain’s impact from a social and an environmental point of view, but also the overall sustainability performance of Benetton Group.

Finally, Benetton undertakes to satisfy the transparency requirements coming from its stakeholders by evaluating its activities’ impact through the implementation of the Higg Brand and Retail Module (BRM). The module is an integrated tool designed to measure the overall sustainability performance of an organization, in order to clarify the strategic goals and monitor the progresses, in an effort to improve working conditions and environmental protection. Benetton, as SAC member, is actively working on the development of the module.
