Brands that attended the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) seminar in Bangladesh, committed to increase their share of GOTS certified textiles. GOTS, a voluntary global standard for the entire post-harvest processing of apparel and home textiles, organised the seminar in Dhaka that was attended by over 170 delegates from five countries.

The national seminar on GOTS certification stressed on the need to create more training and awareness among staff and workers for better implementation of standards at the workplace. The participants also agreed that sustainable textile production, compliant with international standards like GOTS, is the way to go for long term business gains.

The conference had four sessions that addressed the various dimensions of GOTS as an instrument of sustainable supply chain management. These included ‘Business Case for Sustainability with Organic Textiles’, ‘Quality Assurance through GOTS’, ‘Leading the Way to Best Practices’ and ‘Challenges in Sustainable Supply Chain and Opportunities with GOTS’.

“I was delighted to see tremendous interest in GOTS and sustainability among the textile industry in Bangladesh. The fact that this seminar had a full house testifies to the efforts that the industry is making in moving towards a cleaner future. Delegates showed great enthusiasm during the Q&A sessions asking experts their doubts, giving suggestions and even sharing good practices they follow,” said Rahul Bhajekar, GOTS director standards development and quality assurance.

Sumit Gupta, GOTS representative in Bangladesh and India, encouraged the Bangladesh textile industry to use sustainability and GOTS as a tool to achieve its ambitious target of $50 billion in RMG exports.

International brands and retailers, manufacturers and exporters, representatives from Bangladesh government, certification bodies, professionals from fields of testing, chemical compliance, media, trade associations, NGOs, academics, consultants and more attended the seminar. (KD)
