Started in 2009, Candiani was the first denim company to use cotton grown, produced, and marketed according to BCI standards. Founded on seven principles – crop protection, water stewardship, soil health, biodiversity, responsible land use, fiber quality, decent work, and management system – BCI aims to promote measurable and continuous improvements for the environment and farming communities. Currently, BCI cotton represents 40% of Candiani’s total annual cotton supply.
* BCI works with a mass-balance system, which considers the total amount of BCI cotton placed in the global market. As a result, BCI cotton is not physically transferred but in the form of BCI credits.
