G RE E N EW S The Higg index SAC, Sustainable Apparel Coalition, association connecting all major players of global apparel and footwear industry, launches the HIGG, the index of sustainable fashion. Good news from the Sustainability world, in the apparel and footwear industry, thanks to the SAC, Sustai- nable Apparel Coalition. The association which represents more than 60 brands of apparel area (including Adidas, Asics, Coca Cola, H&M) retailers, manufacturers, governmental and non-governmental organizations, experts and academics (more than 1/3 of the market), developed and launched the Higg Index’; conceived to evaluate the envi- ronmental performance of products in fashion industry. The index is based on pre-established assessment tools such as the Outdoor Industry Associations Eco Index and Nikes Environmental Apparel Design Tool, in order to more accurately measure the envi- ronmental and social impacts of the industry. In this way, companies can identify opportunities to lower impact and enhance long-term sustainability. The variables of reference for the evaluation are varied and complex: materials, packaging, manufacturing, transportation, through to the end of life of the product. The current Higg version is focused on the measurement of environmental performance required in the following categories: water use and quality, energy and greenhouse gases, waste, chemicals and toxicity. SAC is constantly committed to refining this instrument. For the future, they anticipate the embedding of metrics related to social and labor aspects. Conceived to be a unique, transparent and open source, to assess the environmental impact of the entire life cycle of an apparel or footwear item, the index can also turn into a universal tool for conveying the sustaina- bility of the product to the consumers and operators.

  6. 6. Talking about Grottini, Retail and Environments. S H O P PING X-P ERIENCE The shopping soundtrack Music, a strategic element contributing to enhance the consumer’s shopping experience and to strengthen the brand. The Retail Industry is a complex and curious “creature”, where today more than ever it is critical to be the best: Often overlooked, is the importance of music in the environment , both for customers and for staff. The right music is able not only to make the shopping experience more fun and engaging, but can also strengthen the brand, extend the shopping visit and motivate customers to return. The right music allows customers feel at ease when shopping; a silent store may be found as a less inviting and motivating environment, and can shorten the shopping visit. The choice of the right music for a retail environment must be strategic, and based upon the core customer of your brand, and their lifestyle. The right mix will catch the consumers’ ear, reinforce the ambiance of your environment and captivate your shopper. Music can also bring the advantage of strengthening the brand; when you offer a well curated and original music selection, customers will associate music to your product and brand. While primarily music will make customers happy and enhance their shopping experience, don’t underesti- mate the positive impact to staff. Music can motivate performance, create a positive morale and even incre- ase productivity and decrease team turn-over!
