Sustainability and fashion on the agenda in Copenhagen

Hosted by the Nordic Fashion Association the Copenhagen Fashion Summit is the world’s largest and most important conference on sustainability in the fashion industry, setting the global agenda on environmental, social and economically sustainable solutions. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting and socially challenged industries, with cotton production alone being the second most polluting crop after cornand the industry’s outsourced production to low wage countries. The Copenhagen Fashion Summit is a part of a continued venture for a joint commitment from the Scandinavian fashion industry to take a lead on social and environmental issues. The previous Summit took place in 2009, with the 2012 Summit being an important step towards the goal, a sustainable fashion industry by 2020.
WGSN is the official Trend partner at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012, taking place May 3rd, 10am-6pm.
