The Global Organic Textile Standard has launched a Due Diligence Handbook for Certified Entities, which, in cooperation with the Hague-based UpRights Foundation, offers a roadmap to help companies reduce their social and environmental impacts. The publication of the handbook is described as “a crucial step forward in the promotion of sustainability, human rights and ethical business conduct in the textile sector”, while also underscoring GOTS’s commitment to social justice and environmental integrity.
