LONDON – A number of leading apparel brands and retailers, cotton standards, existing industry initiatives and other stakeholders across the supply chain have come together to form ‘Cotton 2040’ – a newly developed initiative designed to “accelerate action” and help evolve sustainable cotton into a mainstream commodity.
