Fashion leaders will convene to turn sustainability aspirations into tangible actions

The Global Fashion Summit, the leading international forum on sustainability in fashion, will convene key stakeholders across the fashion ecosystem and parallel industries to drive tangible action on social and environmental sustainability. The summit is presented by Global Fashion Agenda (GFA). GFA is a non-profit organization accelerating the transition to a net positive fashion industry, under the patronage of HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark.

Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition 2023 will take place on June 27-28 at the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, Denmark. Tickets are on sale starting today.

The main goals for sustainability action are in place, yet across the world, industries are not on track to achieve them. The theme of the Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition 2023 is ‘Ambition for Action’. Under this premise, the Summit will present content experiences focused on tangible impact.

The theme will build on all elements of the Summit and the Main Stage speakers will present inspiring thought leadership for accelerated change exploring a matrix of interrelated themes. The 2023 Copenhagen Edition will build on more than a decade’s worth of Summit guidance and outcomes, with an even greater focus on action-oriented workshops and case studies. Through these formats, the forum will demonstrate tangible insights and concrete recommendations that can help in implementation.

The forum will also host even more strategic roundtables aimed at mobilizing industry leaders to build alliances with solution providers, policy makers, investors and other industry stakeholders and implement immediate solutions. Such alliances can set in motion much-needed progress towards a net positive industry. With upcoming policy expected to impact the fashion industry even more this year, the Summit will shed light on current legislation currently being debated both within the EU and globally.

Federica Marchionni, CEO of the Global Fashion Agenda, says: “With strong ambitions for change clearer than ever, it is time for fashion to grow its influence through proven application. Future generations will be forever grateful for the pioneers who turned ambition into action and pioneered pure positive leadership – mobilizing the industry towards this will be the focus of this Summit.”

This year’s Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition is supported by Title Sponsor, Maersk. A world-renowned logistics leader that aims to deliver a more connected, flexible and sustainable future for global logistics. Maersk will support the Summit’s agenda to accelerate industry transformation, highlighting how logistics can help the fashion and lifestyle industry achieve sustainability goals.

Henriette Thygesen, Chief Delivery Officer, AP Moller-Maersk, says: “We are very excited to be the main sponsor of this year’s Global Fashion Summit in Copenhagen. The summit is a fantastic opportunity for industry leaders to share knowledge and we believe that by working in partnership we can create more sustainable logistics solutions for everyone.”

In addition, the Innovation Forum will present a curated exhibition of other leading sustainable solutions. Summit attendees can meet exhibitors covering the entire value chain – from innovative materials to end-use solutions. The Innovation Forum Matchmaking will enable small and large fashion businesses to advance their sustainability journey, providing the unique opportunity to match with relevant solution providers.
