TradeBeyond's New Higg Index Integration Fosters Sustainable Product Development

Hong Kong – May 23, 2023 – TradeBeyond, retail’s leading provider of global supply chain management solutions, has partnered with the impact intelligence platform Worldly, the exclusive
provider of Higg Index data, to integrate its Higg Index Product Tools data directly into TradeBeyond’s multi-enterprise platform.

The new integration enables brands and retailers that rely on TradeBeyond for product development,
sourcing, quality, and supplier management to make the most sustainable choices during material
selection. Designers and business leaders can calculate and compare the environmental impact of
the various inputs to create a product – from raw material selection to manufacturing, logistics, to a
finished product’s use and end of use, information that’s critical for meeting global ESG
requirements and supporting environmental marketing claims. Each product’s impact is visualized on
a dashboard during product specification. The platform allows designers to easily calculate wastage
and determine a product’s environmental impact across multiple units of measurement.

Trusted by more than 40,000 brands, retailers, and global facilities, Worldly delivers real data
specific to the customer’s own supply chain, products and operations such as carbon emissions,
waste, and water usage and pollution all in one place, so they can know their true impact.

“This integration makes it easy for Worldly subscribers to draw powerful, real-time insights from the
Higg Index’s trusted Product Tools,” said Brian Tippy, Worldly’s Director of Partnerships, Technical
Integrations. “It’s an honor to partner with TradeBeyond on a solution that will help some of the
world’s leading brands and retailers effectively reduce their environmental footprint.”

The integration is the latest of many significant ESG enhancements that TradeBeyond has
introduced to its platform, which also allows businesses to map their supply chains, document chain
of custody, and monitor the social and environmental compliance of their suppliers. Amid tightening
global supply chain due diligence laws, the company has seen surging demand for these solutions,
which support ESG initiatives throughout the entire process of developing, sourcing, and shipping

“Sustainability is top of mind for consumers, and brands and retailers are rightfully more concerned
about their environmental footprint than ever before,” said Michael Hung, CEO of TradeBeyond.
“This integration with Worldly is another crucial way that TradeBeyond ensures businesses source to
the highest standards of responsibility. We’re excited to strengthen our partnership with Worldly as
we continue to introduce even deeper integrations in the future.”
