Desk Report: Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) registers the highest growth rate in the year 2019. 7765 certified facilities worldwide, an increase of 35% with more than 3 million workers covered under GOTS in 2019.
In 2019, the number of GOTS certified facilities globally grew by 35%, from 5,760 to 7,765 located in 70 countries. The number demonstrates that GOTS successfully serves as sustainable solution. The required certified organic fibres protect the climate by absorbing CO2 and every processing step – from field to fashion – has to meet stringent social and environmental criteria before a finished product is allowed to carry the GOTS label.
