better cotton initiative

Date : 2012-09-25 10:10:54

Description : The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a voluntary program who’s vision is to enable millions of farmers around the world to grow cotton in a way that is healthier for the farming communities and the environment, and more economical. Through an intense cooperation with a multi-stakeholder group of organisations, together we defined what a better, more sustainable way of growing cotton would look like. We call this definiton “Better Cotton”. Now, for the first time, members of the global cotton supply chain are collectively addressing the negative impacts of mainstream cotton production by supporting this globally recognised definition, generating market demand for Better Cotton, and sharing information and knowledge to enable continuous improvement on everybody’s part.
