ACRE Unique Initiative for Cotton farmers of India

Mumbai, Nov 29 (UNI) Solidaridad Asia, Centre for Responsible Business (CRB) and regenagri today announced the launch of the Alliance of Cotton and Textile Stakeholders on Regenerative Agriculture (ACRE) to promote regenerative cotton farming practice in India.
The Alliance (ACRE) estimates the adoption of such a practice will help fix at least 1 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 2030, while improving the livelihood of more than 500,000 smallholder cotton farmers and their community through various partnerships in India.
The ACRE Alliance was launched at the event ‘Reclaim to Regenerate: Towards Regenerative Cotton Sector in India’ in Nagpur, Maharashtra today. Through this Alliance, Solidaridad and CRB believe the required shift in agricultural practices will be possible because of a new, more systemic form of collaboration between stakeholders across the value chain, which includes farmer groups, ginners, traders, buyers, brands, as well as agricultural and textile authorities, said a press release.
