GOTS sends its heartfelt thoughts and best wishes to everyone who is working together to manage and adapt to COVID-19 in their communities and in particular those who are being directly impacted by the virus. We are hoping for solutions and further actions to flatten the curve and suppress COVID-19 outbreaks.
GOTS COVID-19 Update
We are glad to experience a remaining or even increasing focus on sustainability in the textile industry because we see a growing number of GOTS certified facilities. At the beginning of the pandemic, in response to travel and meeting restrictions, GOTS set up rules for virtual audits for some kinds of facilities and under strict conditions.
GOTS will continuously review the situation and provide updates as required.
