Uzbek Cotton Policy

Restricting the use of Uzbek cotton

We understand that the cotton supply chain is complex, that cotton is a commodity that tends to be commingled and that tracing the origin of cotton in finished products is difficult. We are asking our suppliers to make their best efforts to trace their cotton sources and avoid any cotton from Uzbekistan. We do not prescribe a single approach or timeline, but consider this an ongoing effort that will require the involvement, support and action of a broad range of stakeholders in order to improve our collective abilities to trace cotton origins and ultimately to ensure that cotton used in our products is not made with forced labor or any other human rights violations.
