Five years today, on April 24th 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1,138 people and injuring another 2,500 - making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

Following this tragedy Global Fashion Agenda, the organisation behind Copenhagen Fashion Summit has pushed the industry to focus on improving the safety, wages and development of factory employees - and this year is no exception.

In a discussion entitled 'The Impacts and Opportunities of Purchasing Practices' we'll hear from both industry experts and policy makers to identify how, together with garment manufacturers, factory employees, and workers’ representatives, fashion companies have an opportunity to help form alliances and jointly build sustainable systems to define standards for living wages and labour conditions. A topic we see as just as pressing now as it was in the wake of Rana Plaza.

Today at Copenhagen Fashion Summit we're thinking of those that lost their lives five years ago in the collapse of Rana Plaza while continuing our work to ensure we never see another disaster like this again. For more information about Rana Plaza and stories from those affected be sure to head over to our friends at Fashion Revolution.
