Consumption of water and energy are most important aspects in sustainability considerations for textile processors and manufacturers. As part of the environmental management criteria (chapter 2.4.10) GOTS requires that - among other information - certified entities must have available and provide:

  • data on energy and water resources and their consumption per kg of textile output
  • target goals and procedures to reduce energy and water consumption per kg of textile output

GOTS Monitor (Water/Energy) aims at supporting certified entities to approach and comply with these requirements.

The main functions of GOTS Monitor (Water/Energy) are to:

  • allow an easy data collection on energy and water consumption (per kg of textile output)
  • provide realistic factory-specific benchmark values for these parameters (specifically for wet processing activities)

The user will be supported in setting and monitoring realistic improvement targets regarding the progress in the reduction of his water and energy consumption. Effects will be visible in both environmental terms to fulfil the GOTS Standard requirements and in monetary terms for the business case of sustainability.
