Textile Exchange Organic Cotton Market Report
January 2016 - August 2017
Textile Exchange is a global nonprofit organization that works to make the textile industry more sustainable. The organization produces the Organic Cotton Market Report, an annually published document that outlines the state of organic cotton production and consumption in the global market.
Textile Exchange mandated BSD to assess the data collection methodology, processes and systems to produce the Organic Cotton Market Report and provide recommendations for Textile Exchange to implement so that the report can be successfully verified by a third-party. BSD conducted a systematic assessment and produced a report containing the results of the assessment and providing a clear, actionable pathway for implementing the report's recommendations.
In Phase 2 of this project, BSD provided guidance and support to Textile Exchange to implement the recommendations, including guidance for methodology development, development of sound processes and capacity building for internal stakeholders to implement the new processes. At the end of the reporting cycle, BSD analyzed the Organic Market Report and provided a progress statement on the improvements made by Textile Exchange in their reporting processes.
