Cotton LEADS


The Cotton LEADS℠ program represents cotton that is leading the way in sustainable production practices at a national level in Australia and the U.S. The program raises awareness of the significant efforts being made by its member countries to continously improve. Textile manufacturers, brands and retailers can become a partner in Cotton LEADS℠ program, free of charge.

Cotton LEADS℠ partners recognise the high standards of cotton production in the member countries, and the robust government regulations that protect the natural environment and the rights of workers.


1. Make contact through the Cotton LEADS℠ website to let us know you are committed to responsibly-produced cotton and wish to become a partner. Becoming a partner is free of charge.

2. Sign the Commitment to Cotton and your organisation will be included in the program, receiving full recognition of support.

3. Your organisation becomes part of an active global community of companies working toward a more sustainable future for cotton. There are many opportunities to become an active Cotton LEADS℠ partner: source Australian and U.S. cotton into your supply chain, fund a benevolence project, share what you've learned and promote your involvement.


Cotton Australia has formed a number of authentic partnerships with retailers, brands, manufacturers and supply chain partners who share the industry's values. If your organisation believes in reducing environmental footprint, the fair and safe treatment of workers, quality product and supply chain traceability - then we may be in business.
