Better Cotton Conference tackles sustainability in Istanbul


The Better Cotton Initiative will hold its annual conference in Istanbul, Turkiye on June 26-27. The event, themed "Accelerating Impact," will bring together industry leaders to discuss critical issues in sustainable cotton production.

Over 200 stakeholders from across the supply chain will participate in-person and online. The conference focuses on four key areas:

Putting People First: This theme explores social aspects like fair wages for farmers and the role of producer organizations in supporting sustainable livelihoods.

Driving Change at Field Level: Discussions will delve into women's empowerment, financing for farmers, regenerative agriculture, and collaboration across sectors. A session on carbon markets will debate their effectiveness for smallholder cotton farmers.  

Understanding Policy & Industry Trends: This theme focuses on navigating the evolving legal landscape impacting fashion and textiles. Panels will discuss preparing for new regulations and how performance claims can support sustainability goals.

Reporting on Data & Traceability: This final theme highlights the importance of data in driving progress. Better Cotton will share insights from its 2023 India Impact Report and updates on traceability.

Representatives from Better Cotton Farmers and organizations like Marks & Spencer, WWF, and World Agroforestry will participate, offering their expertise.

The Istanbul conference aims to accelerate progress towards a more sustainable cotton future.
