Field to Market and US Cotton Trust Protocol, have announced a new agreement formalising a partnership between two organisations to document and accelerate sustainable outcomes for US cotton production. This strengthens the ability of cotton growers and value chain to drive continuous improvement, combining two leading sustainability assessment frameworks.
 
“Field to Market is pleased to join forces with the US Cotton Trust Protocol to enable the industry to meet its sustainability goals and credibly communicate results,” Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market, said in a press release. 
 
Through this collaboration, Field to Market is committed to scaling access to our sustainability tools and analytics and enabling growers and the broader cotton value chain to measure environmental outcomes while identifying opportunities for improvement.”
 
In a memorandum of understanding signed this week, Field to Market and the US Cotton Trust Protocol have committed to: scale grower access to sustainability measurement by enabling farmers enrolled in the US Cotton Trust Protocol to utilise metrics from Field to Market’s fieldprint platform, allowing growers to analyse the connection between agronomic practices and sustainability outcomes; track US cotton’s sustainability journey through continued publication of Field to Market’s national indicators report, which will communicate progress against the industry’s established environmental targets; and foster an increased level of collaboration by participating in each other’s meetings and work sessions.
 
Together, Field to Market and the US Cotton Trust Protocol will assess progress against the US cotton industry’s established environmental targets. By 2025, the industry aims to achieve targeted reductions in soil loss, water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy use, alongside increased land use efficiency and soil carbon. The Trust Protocol completed a successful project pilot in 2019, and has begun fully implementing its programs in 2020, with a goal to enrol at least 500 producers by December 2020.
 
“Sustainability is a growing priority for the US cotton value chain, from consumers, brands, retailers to textile manufacturers,” Ken Burton, executive director of the US Cotton Trust Protocol, said in a press release. 
 
The US Cotton Trust Protocol looks forward to collaborating with Field to Market to scale our collective sustainability impact, meet our industry targets and strengthen the sustainability of US cotton.”
