Introducing the Better Cotton Chain of Custody Standard (Session 1)
May 10, 2023
8:00 - 9:00 (BST)
This webinar will provide information on the soon to be published Better Cotton Chain of Custody Standard. This is a revised version of the Better Cotton Chain of Custody Guidelines V1.4 which is the key framework connecting demand with supply of Better Cotton, helping to incentivise cotton farmers to adopt more sustainable practices.
There has been an increased demand for tracing physical Better Cotton which requires the introduction of physical chain of custody models alongside the existing mass balance model. The new Chain of Custody Standard will introduce physical segregation and controlled blending as additional chain of custody models, creating the opportunity for our members to trace physical Better Cotton.
