Last year, we launched a revision of the Better Cotton Principles & Criteria (one of the six elements of the Better Cotton Standard System), which lay out the global definition of Better Cotton. Through the revision, we aim to strengthen the Principles & Criteria to ensure they continue to meet best practice, are effective and locally relevant, and align with Better Cotton’s 2030 strategy.
Over the last five years, we have seen increasing focus on areas such as climate change, decent work and soil health, and the revision of the Principles & Criteria provides an opportunity to ensure our Standard aligns with leading practice in these areas and supports our ambitions to drive field-level change.
Join us on 17 February at 14:30 GMT to learn more about the revision.
During the webinar, we’ll provide an introduction to the revision process including rationale, timeline, governance, and decision making. We’ll also a present a high-level overview of the key areas to be addressed by the revision, and ways you can contribute.
