Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018 turned words into action

1,300 key players from more than 50 countries across the globe representing the fashion sector, politics, NGOs, academia and the media gathered for the sixth edition of the world’s leading annual business event on sustainability, Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

“We have to have this conversation and we have to be held accountable,” proclaimed sustainability pioneer and fashion designer Stella McCartney in conversation with former editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair, Graydon Carter. McCartney’s words summed up this year’s edition of Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the world’s leading business event on sustainability in fashion, which took place at Copenhagen Concert Hall on 15-16 May 2018.

More top managers attended than ever before
More than 1,300 international key players from the fashion industry, politics, NGOs, academia and the media gathered for the sixth edition of the Summit. Almost 60% of them came from the C-suite level, which is 14 percentage points higher than last year. This years’ guests represented 53 nationalities, with a 60% growth in participation from Asia.

From words to action
Due to the urgent need to support and accelerate the decision-making process for fashion businesses, the Summit launched a brand new component, Innovation Forum, an exhibition space for sustainable solutions. With 50 exhibitors, including some of the most noteworthy sustainable solution providers to the fashion industry, such as ISKOTM, I:CO, Piñatex, ECONYL® and Sustainable Angle, to name a few, Summit participants had an excellent opportunity to meet with sustainable providers covering the entire value chain.

Eva Kruse, CEO of Summit organiser Global Fashion Agenda, commented:

“Previously, the Summit, with all its inspiring and thought-provoking speeches, panel and roundtable discussions, primarily centred on words, but we felt that the time was right to add more action to the event. With this new exhibition space, we’ve made it easier for our guests to actually take the next step, to go from words to action, and to accelerate their sustainability journey.”

75 speakers on stage
The sixth edition of the Summit also boasted 75 high-level speakers, including sustainability thought leader David Roberts of Singularity University; EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager; COO Eric Sprunk of NIKE; CEO Spencer Fung of Li & Fung; Vogue US fashion director Tonne Goodman; sustainability pioneer Dame Ellen MacArthur; models and entrepreneurs Lily Cole and Edie Campbell, the founders of Highsnobiety, Vestiaire Collective, Fashion Revolution, and many more. The hosts were Amber Valletta, actress, model and entrepreneur, and Tim Blanks, editor-at-large of The Business of Fashion.

Wrapping up two days of intense leadership roundtables, conversations and business meetings was a panel discussion featuring the Strategic Partners of Global Fashion Agenda: Kering, H&M, Target, Li & Fung and Sustainable Apparel Coalition, who took the stage to address why sustainability should be a leadership priority and to discuss some of the recommendations from the Pulse of the Fashion Industry 2018 report, released the week prior to the Summit.
