Anthesis Group deepens its leadership position in the sustainable apparel space with the addition of Higg Index Expert Elena Kocherovsky as Principal Consultant.
Elena formerly served as Senior Manager with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) where she specialized in the implementation of the Higg Index, a suite of SAC-developed tools used by the apparel, footwear and textile industry to standardize the measurement of a company or product’s sustainability performance. Elena oversaw the development and deployment of the Higg Facility Environmental Module, and has particular insight into the engagement of the global apparel and footwear supply chain.
Elena will continue to support SAC members in leveraging their Higg data, as well as to provide supporting services focused on Higg Index utilization and data insights. Elena is already well known to Anthesis, having worked closely with the Anthesis Apparel team in her former role at the SAC.
Elena brings with her a wealth of experience that will be applied immediately with Anthesis clients, including expertise in supply chain environmental sustainability; energy, water, and other impact management, and environmental data collection and analysis.
On her appointment, Elena says “I am thrilled to be joining Anthesis and for the opportunity to blend my experience from the apparel and footwear industry and my specialization in the Higg Index with Anthesis’ impressive data analytics and technology edge. There is a great need in the industry for support and guidance around how to utilize the vast quantity of data that has been collected in recent years, and Anthesis is uniquely positioned to help businesses leverage that data to drive meaningful impact. I look forward to expanding my support of the apparel, footwear and textile industry in this new role.”
