What we do
The Better Cotton GIF makes strategic investments into Better Cotton projects to propel the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) towards its 2020 targets. The Fund identifies, supports and invests in innovations, while fostering adoption of the Better Cotton Standard System by governments, trade associations and other entities. Please refer to the annual report for country-specific project details.
HOW WE’RE FUNDED
The Fund mobilises contributions from BCI Retailer and Brand Members, Better Cotton Implementing Partners, and matched funds from public and private donors.
Who we are
Launched in 2016, as successor of a Fund set up in 2010 by BCI and IDH, the Better Cotton Growth and Innovation Fund is governed by the BCI Council in partnership with BCI Retailers and Brands, Civil Society Members, and Government Bodies. IDH, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, is the official Fund Manager along with being an important funder.
To support BCI in its aim to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future.
