Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012 for sustainability
The fashion industry, or perhaps the textile industry, has often come under fire as a major global polluter. The Copenhagen Fashion Summit attempts to combat this by playing host to the world’s largest conference on sustainability and fashion.
The conference, to be held on 3 May 2012 at the Copenhagen Opera House, will invite around 1000 key industry stakeholders to identify new opportunities and forward-looking solutions to tackle the growing sustainability challenges of the global fashion industry.
For a long time, the industry has outsourced production to low wage countries, but there is a willingness to share knowledge and pool resources to improve fashion’s sustainability footprint.
The Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012 will mark the UN Global Compact’s first sectorial initiative when a new code of conduct will be launched specifically for the fashion industry.
