Despite the unparalleled challenges of 2020 our organisation's important work continued and delivered noticeable advancements towards the GOTS vision that organic textiles will become a significant part of everyday life, enhancing people's lives and the environment.

Our 2020 Annual Report highlights the 4,22 million workers benefitting from the high social standards required of GOTS certified facilities, a remarkable increase of 32% over last year. Despite the severe restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic the number of certified GOTS facilities grew by 34% to over ten thousand serving both environment and workers.

2020 also saw the release of GOTS Standard Version 6.0 in March 2020 after a year-long revision process that saw the highest number of comments and inputs. GOTS 6.0 is in effect since March 1st 2021.
