Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012
Under the patronage of the Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012 gathered over 1000 key fashion industry players at the Danish Opera house. With a broad rage of keynotes - from GUCCI to Greenpeace - the Copenhagen Fashion Summit managed to set the international agenda on sustainability and fashion.
Copenhagen Fashion Summit was once again a huge success. 1,043 key industry stakeholders of the fashion industry from 27 different countries were gathered in Copenhagen to share insights and identify new opportunities and forward-looking solutions for the global fashion industry to tackle the growing environmental challenges. Focus of the summit was to discuss ways on how to involve and engage consumers in sustainable consumption.
The fashion industry successfully outlined a framework for engaging consumers in sustainable consumption of fashion, which was handed over to the Danish EU Presidency and the European Commission. The framework will also be presented at the UN conference - Rio+20 negotiations in June.
