Innovation Description

BCI has developed the first components of a global traceability system and investment model. It is a holistic approach to more sustainable cotton production, based on a voluntary standard for improvement, which can be implemented in a mainstream way on a global scale. An innovative funding and traceability system secures support to farmers for implementation of the program while avoiding trading premiums.
