BCI Climate Change

Climate change is a real and pressing challenge for cotton farmers worldwide, from the large, mechanised farms of Australia to the millions of smallholders in countries including India, China and Madagascar. Extreme or irregular weather, prompted by climate change, heightens the risk of poor cotton yields and low fibre quality, with cotton farmers facing risk of increased costs and lower profits, and even loss of livelihood.

The Better Cotton Initiative has published its Towards Climate Resilience series, exploring how BCI Farmers across the world are taking action to build their resilience to extreme weather and reduce their own carbon footprint.

The journey begins in Australia.


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.
