Better Cotton now accounts for 14 per cent of global cotton production, a 2 per cent increase on 2016, according to the BCI 2017 annual report, launched at the BCI Global Cotton Conference in Brussels. The report celebrates the achievements of BCI farmers, partners, members and stakeholders from around the world towards making cotton production sustainable.

BCI is striving to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future.

In the 2016-2017 cotton season, 1.3 million licensed BCI farmers in 21 countries produced 3.3 million metric tonnes of Better Cotton lint, enabling a record-level of more sustainably produced cotton to enter the global supply chain.

The report highlights achievements of the initiative in sustainable cotton production including challenging of the gender inequality and implementation of innovative sustainable farming practices among BCI farmers and implementing partners in Mozambique, Pakistan and China.

The Global Harvest Report section details the BCI’s global reach, providing global and country-level figures, plus updates on the Better Cotton Standard System.

The ‘Better Cotton Growth and Innovation Fund’ and ‘Financial Footprint’ sections of the report provide details of the BCI funding model and investment mechanisms. (SV)
