This update provides a summary of the Australian cotton industry’s sustainability progress for the 12 months to 30 June 2021.
We have committed to delivering comprehensive sustainability reports every five years, commencing from 2014. In farming systems, where seasonal variations can make a single year look much better or worse than average, a five-year period gives a clearer picture of change over time.
Between the five-year sustainability reports, we have also committed to delivering concise annual updates like this to give a summary of actions, insights, and data where available.
For readers wanting more detail, links to online documents are provided throughout this update.
A data pack containing data sources, explanations of methodologies, pathways for improvement and more for each topic is available here.
