Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
The mission of GOTS is to develop, implement, verify, protect and promote the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This standard sets the requirements for the entire supply chain for both environmental and working conditions in textile and apparel production that uses organically produced raw materials. Organic production is based on agriculture that maintains and restores soil fertility without the use of toxic, permanent pesticides and fertilisers. In addition, organic production relies on appropriate animal husbandry and excludes genetic modification.
