The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has released a 20 minutes video outlining the new criteria and specifications, as well as clarifications of differences between GOTS version 3.0 and 4.0.
 
GOTS has released the animated video in line with its policy to work for the benefit of the organic textile community worldwide and adopt latest changes and innovations.
 
The video will be useful for companies wishing to get a good overview of the GOTS standard and the changes in version 4.0. It will also be useful to companies for imparting internal training, GOTS said in a press release.
 
Aimed at enhancing the skill level of both operators and certifiers, the video highlights changes in new version, including the ones about new 30 per cent rule for recycled synthetic fibres and regenerated fibres from sustainable sources.
 
“The video makes it really easy to understand current version of our standard. We shall also be showing this video during the 1st International GOTS Conference to be held on 22nd May, 2015 in Mumbai,” said Sumit Gupta, GOTS Representative in India and Bangladesh.
 
GOTS is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide. 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. (RKS)
