Collectively solving environmental issues and introducing sustainable labour practices for textile workers in India.

COTEX

 

Consortium of Textile ExportersCOTEX is the Consortium of Textile Exporters, located in Jaipur, India, which got its start under the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). This consortium set out to strengthen the communication links among and between textile producers and their service providers. COTEX believed that by cooperating together, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) could reduce their costs, become more efficient and better participate in the global market. By coming together, the consortium members could potentially move beyond competition on the basis of low cost labor and promote improvement of products, upgradation of technologies and development of new skills.
