Cotton Leads

Cotton LEADS is a partnership between the Australian and United States cotton industries to promote the nation-wide sustainability work underway in both countries.

The program was established in 2012 and now has almost 600 partners including manufacturers, brands and retailers who recognise the need for responsibly-produced cotton globally.

These partners commit to the five core principles of the program:

  1. Commitment to sustainably balance social, economic, and environmental factors.
  2. Recognition that we must continue to develop and implement best practices.
  3. Understanding that working at a national level drives large-scale improvements.
  4. Belief in working cooperatively to advance sustainable cotton sourcing and production.
  5. Confidence in traceable cotton identification systems.
