BCI announces top ten Better Cotton Sourcing businesses

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), a not-for-profit organisation stewarding the global standards for Better Cotton, and bringing together cotton’s complex supply chain, from farmers to retailers, and its members, has announced the top ten Better Cotton Sourcing high-street and small BCI retail and brand members from all around the world.

The top 10 Better Cotton sourcing high-street businesses include H&M, IKEA, Adidas, Nike, Levi Strauss & Co, C&A, Marks and Spencer, Bestseller, VF Corp, and Tommy Hilfiger.

The top 10 on ‘Better Cotton as percentage of total cotton consumption’, includes some smaller BCI retail and brand members like Stadium, IKEA, Adidas, BabyBjorn, Marks and Spencer, Nike, Marimekko, ASOS, Hemtex, and Kathmandu and Bestseller.

The listings illustrate perfectly the way the cotton consumption of different businesses varies quite significantly. For example, H&M as top Better Cotton consumer on volume, ranks 11th as percentage of its total cotton sourcing in 2016, due to its size.

As highlighted in the BCI annual report, globally, Better Cotton was produced in 21 countries over 5 continents, reached 1.6 million farmers, was grown on 3.4 million hectares, producing 2.6 million metric tonnes of Better Cotton lint.

BCI retail and brand members are setting their sights on doubling their 2016 performance this year to 1,000,000 metric tonnes sourced as Better Cotton lint. (GK)
