Delegates discuss sustainable fashion at GOTS Seminar
More than 180 delegates from five countries discussed various aspects of efficiency in sustainable fashion and textile manufacturing at the recent Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) India Seminar. At the event, stakeholders talked of implementing guidelines for protection of environment and people to secure the future and reputation of operations.

The attendees included international brands & retailers, Indian fashion brands, textile manufacturers, chemical suppliers, testing laboratories, accreditation bodies, academicians, industry organisations, certification bodies, standard bodies, service providers, consultants and other important stakeholders from the field of organic textiles and sustainability.

Indian companies presented case-studies on how investments in environmental and social compliances have led to increase in savings and therefore led to business efficiency and higher profitability. "It was a very positive gathering and GOTS has done great arrangements at all fronts. I could meet many new friends and I am really happy with the response what I got from the audience at the seminar," D Subaashkumaar, vice president, Anugraha Fashion Mill Pvt Ltd, a participant.

"Indian consumers as well as Indian brands are looking for ecological fashion products, but gaps remain for criteria and communication. GOTS has the potential to fill these gaps by providing uniform criteria for sustainable production and communication in all parts of the supply chain," said Sumit Gupta, GOTS representative in India and Bangladesh.

Four sessions of the seminar addressed the various aspects of efficiency in sustainable fashion and textile manufacturing. The sessions included buyers’ perspective, chemical compliance, social responsibility and futuristic certification systems.

"It was my pleasure to participate in the seminar. All stakeholders of the industry were present here. I congratulate GOTS team for the success of GOTS India Seminar 2018," Prasad Pant, director - South Asia for Amsterdam based ZDHC Foundation.

"It was a wonderful gathering of Indian and international high level experts. We had concrete examples of investments in social and environmental aspects leading to business efficiency and profitability," Claudia Kersten, GOTS managing director.

"I was very pleased with the response we had from across the supply chain, chemical manufacturers included. The speakers were on-point and the audience interaction was excellent. It all goes to show that GOTS in India has a sustained, growing future," said Rahul Bhajekar, GOTS managing director. (RR)
