Report shows ‘preferred cotton’ sourcing progress

Textile Exchange has published the first annual 2020 Sustainable Cotton Challenge Report, as part of an initiative that aims to encourage brands and retailers to source 100 per cent of their cotton from a list of approved environmental standards.

It was found that nearly half (47 per cent) of the current signatories to the programme have already achieved a preferred cotton share in their supply chains of between 75 – 100 per cent.
