GOTS India Seminar 2018 is the third event in India organized by the Global Organic Textile Standard organisation (GOTS). Earlier events in Mumbai and New Delhi were highly appreciated by participants and industry, informs the organiser. The main topic this time will be sustainability.
The seminar is scheduled to be held on 29th May 2018 in Le Méridien Coimbatore, India. The theme for this seminar is ‘Sustainability as Key to Business Efficiency’. The organisers aim to make a discussion of the stakeholders and actors from organic textile supply chains possible and to contemplate positive initiatives to achieve business efficiency through sustainable practices. "The one-day seminar shall address pressing issues relevant to the organic textiles industry", explains GOTS.
"As consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental cost of fast fashion, 2018 is predicted be the year that sustainability goes mainstream. Advances in textile process innovations can lead to sustainable development while at the same time improving efficiencies and enhancing profits", says GOTS.
