Cotton Incorporated, the research and promotion company for the United States cotton producers and importers, has appointed its first chief sustainability officer— Dr Jesse Daystar. Before joining Cotton Incorporated, he held the position of assistant director at the Duke Center for sustainability and commerce at Duke University, where he also taught.

"Daystar brings in a wealth of experience and knowledge to this newly created role, which will oversee and coordinate our internal and external sustainability efforts," said Berrye Worsham, president and chief executive officer of Cotton Incorporated. "As our company's sustainability programmes continue to gain momentum, Daystar will be a valuable resource for the company and the cotton industry."

Dystar is well-versed in the complexities of sustainability research, particularly as it relates to cellulosic fibres, including cotton. His research has appeared in scholarly journals and his consulting work has led to the development of sustainability and chemical engineering tools, and certifications for clients including the United States Department of Agriculture, department of energy, Eastman Chemical, and Piedmont Biofuels.

His experience includes sustainable chemical process development and efficiency management programme development with the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, Mead WestVaco, Pesco-Beam Environmental Solutions, and Kemira Chemical. He earned a doctorate in forest biomaterials from North Carolina State University. (RR)
