Posted at 13:31h in News
This year, on Sunday, September 8th, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Bangladesh Seminar 2019 (GBDS19) was held in Dhaka at the International Convention City Bashundhara.
The theme of this year’s seminar carried the title ‘Connecting for Success’, bringing together key players and stakeholders of the sustainability industry.
The seminar’s agenda entailed sessions on a variety of topics like risk assessment, brands’ perspective, market upates or technical compliance – with speakers originating either from Bangladesh or other nations each representing different brands, exporters, certifiers and stakeholders from the chemical industry and others.
Bangladesh is ranked on second place when it comes to the amount of GOTS-certified facilities in the country, illustrating the country’s textile industry’s commitment and ambition to use organic fibers as well as to social and environmental compliances.
The seminar is a great opportunity for brands and stakeholders of the industry to emphasize and illustrate their commitment to sustainability and to sustain the industry’s growth by connecting with other stakeholders in the organic textile value chain.
Because not only connections within a country are important, active engagement with international stakeholders such as brands, suppliers, exporters and buyers are essential to further the success of the industry.
Our General Manager, Suraya Akter, and Junior Project Manager, Nazmus Sakib, met major stakeholders of the industry including representatives of the GOTS.
