JCPenney joins Cotton LEADS Program for sustainability
JCPenney, one of the largest apparel and home retailers, has joined the Cotton LEADS Program of Cotton Incorporated, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability. The programme raises awareness of sustainable and responsible cotton growing by connecting businesses across the global supply chain with the leading efforts in sustainable cotton production.

At present, the Cotton LEADS Program has more than 500 partner companies around the world that support sustainable cotton production. Cotton LEADS is a programme that is committed to responsibly-produced cotton. Built upon core principles that are consistent with sustainability, the use of best practices and traceability in the supply chain, Cotton LEADS offers cotton users the confidence and knowledge that their raw material is responsibly produced and identified. Cotton LEADS was founded by an alliance of industry organisations in Australia and the United States of America.

"We are pleased to have JCPenney, one of the great American retailers, become a Cotton LEADS partner," said Mark Messura, senior vice president of global supply chain marketing at Cotton Incorporated. "We applaud the company’s commitment to responsible sourcing and sustainable practices, which is now further exemplified through their involvement with the Cotton LEADS Program."

"JCPenney is committed to protecting the environment through sustainable business practices. As one of the largest purchasers of clothing, shoes, accessories and household items sold in the United States and Puerto Rico, we have an obligation to maintain rigorous standards across our operations – from product conception to final delivery to customers," said Val Harris, senior vice president of product development and design at JCPenney. "We are proud to become partners of the respected Cotton LEADS Program and will continue to explore more opportunities to incorporate sustainable cotton into our apparel and home designs." (RR)
