GOTS unveils version 2.0 of GOTS Monitor (Water/Energy)
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has released version 2.0 of the software tool GOTS Monitor (Water/Energy). The tool was developed by Sustainable Solutions to support the evaluation of factories’ compliance with the GOTS’ “Environmental management criteria”. GOTS comprises OTA (USA), IVN (Germany), Soil Association (UK), and JOCA (Japan).

GOTS Chapter 2.4.10 requires that operators need to have available and provide data on energy and water consumption per kg of textile output and the targets and procedures to reduce energy and water consumption per kg of textile output, according to a press release by GOTS.

Both requirements are covered by GOTS Monitor, as it determines actual performance and specific consumption values and provides realistic, factory-specific benchmark values that can be used both as improvement targets and milestones to monitor their progress.
Additional benefits for operators: Achieved improvements are presented both in environmental and in monetary terms and it also allows to compare own performance vis-à-vis global benchmarks from facilities doing similar processing on similar machinery.

Compared to the previous version (1.0), this new release is developed using state-of-the-art tools and methods. It fixes any bug and shortcoming reported by its numerous users. It has new, powerful operational features, increasing its user-friendliness, stability, scalability, portability, and robustness. The new version has a much simpler user interface and uses a much simpler activation and licensing scheme. It includes enhanced processing methods and tools knowledge base and utilises much more accurate and extensive benchmarking methodology.

The revamped tool is free to use for GOTS certified textile companies. Besides, they can opt in for two levels of expert consultancy services (including recommendations for improvement) from Sustainable Solutions for a nominal fee. The details of Service Level 1 & 2 can be found within the tool under Administration tab. (GK)
