Sustainable Cotton Towards A Low Carbon Future

Kering, in partnership with Rare and South Pole, conducted a carbon insetting feasibility study to scale climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices for cotton farmers in China. This report proposes a roadmap of feasible technical interventions for two CSA practices – agroforestry and composting, with an estimate of how these interventions will reduce and sequester greenhouse gases (GHG). It also aims to help make the business case for farmers, and demonstrates how brands can account for GHG emission reductions as part of their Scope 3 Science-Based Targets commitments.
