The ‘Cotton Ranking 2020’ report is based on independent research, looking at 77 major cotton using companies. The report in 2017 had Adidas placed in sixth place, however this year they are now in first place – as they are now sourcing 100 per cent of the cotton that they use from sustainable sources.

‘Leading British companies are showing international leadership on sourcing cotton that doesn’t damage the environment – but the gap between the best and the rest is simply not good enough.’ – WWF-UK executive director of advocacy and campaigns Kate Norgrove said.
