Written by David Styles

STUTTGART – The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has seen the annual number of certified facilities increase to 5,024 in 2017, an 8.2 per cent increase on the same period in 2016.

The world’s second-largest apparel exporter, Bangladesh reported the highest increase which amounted to around 40 per cent. North America and Portugal were both home to a 39 per cent rise, and there was an average increase of 29 per cent across Europe.

This follows a significant increase in the figures from the year before, which saw a rise from 3,814 facilities in 2015 to 4,642 facilities in 2016.
