The €1.5 trillion fashion industry is also one of the most resource and labour intensive industries in the world, emphasising the need for a unified effort to increase the sustainability of our industry across categories, borders and size of businesses. Hence achieving significant impact calls for a joint commitment on addressing the most critical issues that face our industry and planet.
Global Fashion Agenda’s mission is therefore to mobilise the international fashion industry to transform the way we produce and consume fashion. This is done by engaging the broader fashion community on the most pressing issues and solutions and by creating joint commitments to achieve significant progress.
As the flagship event of Global Fashion Agenda, Copenhagen Fashion Summit offers a meeting platform for the fashion sector’s decision-makers and creatives to learn from and engage with industry frontrunners, leading NGOs, experts, policy-makers and academia, and come together on making sustainability a strategic priority. Ultimately Copenhagen Fashion Summit will steer industry leaders towards concrete commitments, for a world beyond next season.
Making sustainability fashionable
Global Fashion Agenda is first and foremost a fashion platform that conveys sustainability and expert knowledge to mainstream fashion executives and creatives. Global Fashion Agenda takes sustainability out of the lab and into the boardroom, thereby influencing decision-making at a strategic and operational level.
Rallying decision-makers on concrete commitments
The flagship initiative - Copenhagen Fashion Summit - is the largest event convening the major fashion industry decision-makers at a global scale, ranging from C-suite level executives and policy-makers to designers, buyers and fashion influencers. We believe in the power of uniting forces to focus efforts across and for the benefit of the entire sector, and unite these decision-makers around a firm commitment to transformation.
REACHING ALL CORNERS OF THE FASHION SECTOR
Global Fashion Agenda aims to create a movement by engaging the entire spectrum of stakeholders that can make a difference, from CEOs to consumers, luxury to high street, sustainability experts to fashion influencers, academia to business, designers to suppliers and policy-makers to NGOs. Global Fashion Agenda aims to identify the most important issues and solutions for the industry as a whole.
AMPLIFYING AND DEMYSTIFYING EXPERTISE
Global Fashion Agenda will take a collaborative approach to curate, amplify and support the best of ongoing initiatives and programmes. We see the need to reinforce the message of these initiatives to a wider and non-expert audience, translating often complex knowledge and tools into accessible resources for executives and creatives alike and providing the business perspective.
