GOTS version 6.0 requires businesses to calculate energy consumption and put a plan in place to make improvements. They’ve created a tool to help businesses with both calculation and planning for improvement.
What is the GOTS Monitor?
The GOTS Monitor Water/Energy Tool (GOTS WE Tool) helps you determine water and energy consumption relative to your business’s textile output.
Once you have compiled your data, the tool will also provide you with benchmarks for success that you can work towards to improve energy and water efficiency.
You can access the GOTS WE Tool here.
Am I required to use the GOTS Monitor?
You are not required to use the GOTS monitor to capture this data and set goals for improvement. However, you will need to use an alternative method to capture and report this data for your business.
