Field To Market and US Cotton Trust Protocol partner to for sustainable cotton production


Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture and the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol have formalized a partnership to document and accelerate sustainable outcomes for US cotton production. The new partnership strengthens the ability of cotton growers and the value chain to drive continuous improvement, combining two of the industry’s leading sustainability assessment frameworks.

Together, Field to Market and the US Cotton Trust Protocol will assess progress against the U.S. cotton industry’s established environmental targets. By 2025, the industry aims to achieve targeted reductions in soil loss, water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy use, alongside increased land use efficiency and soil carbon. The Trust Protocol completed a successful project pilot in 2019, and has begun fully implementing its programs in 2020, with a goal to enroll at least 500 producers by December 2020.
