A. Brand level A.1. Environment (apparel) This tool, which scores in terms of an ideal, consists of seven areas with the same relative weight, which are divided into different aspects; in turn, each of them has a speci fi c relative weight (see Table 3 ). The scoring system of the Higg Index was designed to drive behavior change. In the Index (2.0), points were heuristically assigned to each indicator question to potentially drive actions, decisions, and practices that lead to better sustainability outcomes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
