GOTS India Seminar 2018 will be held in Coimbatore on May 29. Stakeholders and actors from organic textile supply chains will come together to discuss various initiatives to achieve business efficiency through sustainable practices. Advances in textile process innovations can lead to sustainable development while at the same time improve efficiencies and enhance profits. Through focused and challenging discussions, this one-day seminar will address pressing issues relevant to the organic textile industry. It will equip delegates with best practices and knowhow relating to the biggest opportunities – and challenges – while transforming their supply chains to achieve efficiency through sustainability.
Key issues which will feature are sustainability in the fashion industry, current trends in eco-fashion, priorities of buyers, chemical and environmental compliance, trends in environmental compliances, future of compliances and standards.
As consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental cost of fast fashion, 2018 is predicted to be the year when sustainability goes mainstream. GOTS has been organising international and regional events since 2015. GOTS India Seminar 2018 is the third event in India organized by the organisation. Earlier events were in Mumbai and New Delhi.
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is the stringent voluntary global standard for the entire postharvest processing (including spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing and manufacturing) of apparel and home textiles made with certified organic fiber (such as organic cotton and organic wool) and includes both environmental and social criteria.
