AMSTERDAM – The Organic Cotton Accelerator (OCA) initiative has published its 2020 annual report, in which it reflects on “a year of milestones, opportunities and successes”.
The organisation, which supports farmers in cultivating organic cotton while encouraging brands and retailers to adopt their ‘sustainable’ materials, dubbed the past year as “incomparable, unexpected and unforgettable”.
Bart Vollaard, the OCA’s executive director, commented: “Amidst the great uncertainty that hit the fashion and textiles sector, security and stability were the necessary antidote. Conducting business responsibly meant ensuring that OCA and our partners continued to deliver against our commitment to provide a secure market for organic cotton farmers. I am proud to say collectively we met that commitment.”
