Better Cotton Workshops

At IPS, sustainability is embedded in our purpose. We believe in building a future that is sustainable, resilient, and conducive to the well-being of all.
Better Cotton, a non-profit organisation promoting better cotton growing practices globally, organised workshops in Abidjan on March 28th and 29th. The initiative, active in 24 countries, now accounts for around 12% of worldwide cotton production.
The workshops were held as Better Cotton’s partnership with Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) came to an end. The first workshop gathered multi-stakeholder actors from across West Africa in the cotton sector and beyond. Its objective was to share experiences, learnings, and explore opportunities for collaboration that can inform Better Cotton’s activities and ambitions to achieve tangible impact in the region.
The second workshop focused specifically on Côte d’Ivoire’s application for Better Cotton membership. It allowed the organisation to assess the involvement of actors in the Ivorian cotton sector and learn about sustainable actions already underway.
Ivoire Coton, one of the largest cotton companies in Côte d’Ivoire, was represented by its Managing Director, Mr. Jean-Charles Sigrist, and Commercial Director, Mrs. Johanna Adotevi. As demand grows for more sustainable cotton produced via environmentally-friendly and ethical practices, initiatives like Better Cotton play a crucial role in reshaping the global cotton industry. The workshops in Abidjan demonstrate their commitment to expanding their mission across West Africa.
