From cotton field to hanger

InoCottonGROW – Global cotton textile industry: the german water footprint in Pakistan


Germany is considered a country rich in water. However, our demand for water-intensive cotton textiles (jeans, T-shirts, bed linen and more) contributes significantly to water shortage and water pollution in the mostly Asian producing countries, where immense water management challenges are intensified by population growth and climate change. The joint project InoCottonGROW aims to contribute to sustainable water use along the cotton-textile supply chain „from cotton field to hanger“ in case studies and demonstration projects in Pakistan.
