Better Cotton Initiative: Australia’s participation

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global sustainability program focused at farm level improvements.

BCI has members throughout the supply chain that are committed to the production and supply of cotton produced under a set of BCI standards covering social and environmental issues like pesticide management and child labour.

Cotton Australia signed a formal partnership agreement with BCI on behalf of Australia’s cotton industry in June 2014. Cotton Australia will continue to manage the industry’s relationship with BCI, has recently secured a seat on the BCI Council (its global overseeing Board) and will assist growers to become myBMP certified so they can participate in the program.
