Cotton industry sustainability plan

February 1st, 2019 / By: / Industry News, News

The Cotton Council International has announced the introduction of the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol, an integrated data collection, measurement and verification procedure that will document U.S. cotton production practices and their environmental impact. The data is intended to benchmark farmers’ gains towards the industry goals and will provide the global textile supply chain additional assurances that U.S. cotton is produced in a responsible manner. The U.S. cotton national sustainability goals aim for an increase in productivity and irrigation efficiency while decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and soil loss by the year 2025.
