"The three pillars of sustainability – the environment, the economy and social issues – were already playing a role in the cotton industry when the word sustainability was far from being on everyone's lips. Many changes that are being demanded in the sense of responsible agriculture and responsible trade take their time, many are already in the starting blocks and a lot already exists. We have a very alert, active agricultural research worldwide," said Henning Hammer, president of the Bremen Cotton Exchange.
"The Bremen Cotton Conference is unique because it brings the diverse world of cotton together in one place. It is always a great opportunity to learn about the latest innovations, talk to cotton merchants and get an overview of the industry," Kai Hughes, executive director of the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) in Washington, said.
Talking about the importance of digitalization in the entire supply chain of the cotton industry, professor Axel S Hermann, head of the Fibre Institute Bremen said, "It enables new approaches in cotton cultivation and textile processing, but also influences consumer behaviour and thus the necessary changes in the textile industry.” The focus is on the status quo of the implementation, as well as the opportunities and risks of digitally controlled, vertically integrated procurement and sales processes and the associated challenges at retail level."
In addition, in a high-level expert session, there was an exchange of the latest research results which helped to determine the future of cotton production and the processing of cotton into innovative products. (RR)
