Australia’s Cotton Sustainability report identifies areas for improvement

By comparing performance from 2014 to 2019 in the industry’s eight most important sustainability areas, the Australian Cotton Sustainability Report 2019 also highlights areas the industry can do better in, such as the need to make greater efforts to reduce carbon emissions, improve nitrogen use efficiency, increase on-farm carbon sequestration in soil and native vegetation, and improve farm safety.

The 2019 Australian Cotton Sustainability Report is part of the industry’s new Planet, People, Paddock, sustainability framework which guides the industry to set ambitious targets, coordinate a whole-of-industry strategy to achieve these targets, and engage effectively with stakeholders on actions and progress.

Cotton Research and Development Corporation General Manager, R & D Investment, Allan Williams says data from the report can be used to set five-year targets for 2024 and 2029, and plans to achieve those targets. The industry can point to long-term trends of significant improvement in areas it has focused on in the past, and we will draw on this experience to transform our performance in other areas in the future
