Industry and Other

With the support of many partners and leading experts from across the world, we have created a science-based sustainability initiative that spans the textile supply chain.

Achieving improved sustainability outcomes is a journey, and its success is dependent on many factors – from fostering collaboration and a collective sense of purpose, to delivering consistency across all activity that will drive change. We are also aware that the U.S. cotton industry, like many industries, must deliver this progress as demand increases.

Each organization brings their own expertise from within the cotton industry, a thorough understanding of the sustainability challenges facing the textile industry, or experience within the retail sector.
