Who we are

BCI operates as a not-for-profit organisation. Through a 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 definition “Better Cotton”.

Members of the global cotton supply chain are now 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.
