Understanding the Higg MSI: LCA Expert Panel Discussion on Common Criticisms
Thursday, September 17, 10:00 am – 11:00 am PDT / Breakout 10A
A new version of the Higg MSI launched on August 3rd. Since its release, we have received a lot of feedback. While much of the feedback is good, we have also received some strong criticism. In this session we will talk to a panel of LCA experts in the apparel, footwear and home textile industry. We are going to ask the difficult question to collectively gain clarity on the strengths, limitations, and challenges of the Higg MSI. By the end of the session we will know how to interpret Higg MSI results and how we can collaborate as an industry to further strengthen the tool overtime.
