The Global Organic Textile Standard has just released its version 7.0, while the certification system of organic cotton in India is currently under scrutiny (fraud suspicion, suspension of controlling bodies)…
The revision process, described as “the most inclusive in GOTS history”, led to a significant number of changes and improvements, especially (but not only!) on the social side, including new notions such as risk-based due diligence, social audits, living wages.
The new standard, applicable to all textiles products made from organic natural fibres, will come into force in March 2024.
