GOTS to organise first international conference in Mumbai

Feb '15
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide, will be organising its first-ever international conference on Friday, 22nd May 2015 at The Lalit, Mumbai, India.
 
The theme of the conference is ‘Strong Partnerships for Success’. The event will underline and highlight GOTS’ commitment to the organic textiles market in general, and India, in particular, as it is the largest producer of organic cotton (around 70 per cent of the world).
 
India is also the largest processing and export market of textiles using organic fibres. With more than 1,000 facilities, India is also the country with the highest number of GOTS certified facilities worldwide, which makes it actually the hottest sourcing destination for the same. However, even more commitment is required at garmenting stage to further exploit the potential in this sector, according to GOTS.
 
Attendees to the conference will benefit by means of gathering new knowledge and insights in the fields of organic fibre production as well as environmentally and socially responsible textile processing, gain a better understanding of related problems and possible solutions, learn about best practices and business cases for sustainability, harbour business networking and strengthen communication, collaboration and coordination amongst key stakeholders.
 
“The conference will be a great opportunity for all players in the textiles value chain, who are committed to sustainability and looking towards implementing the business case for sustainability with the help of GOTS - as their supply chain management instrument of choice,” says Claudia Kersten, GOTS marketing director.
 
GOTS is recognised as the leading processing standard (also called the ‘Gold Standard') for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide and serves as the credible third party assurance for such textiles. It defines high level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain of organic textiles and requires compliance with social criteria as well. GOTS certification ensures organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to packing and labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
