Global apparel brands to partake in sustainability summit

Jun '13
Sustainability in the fashion industry is gaining momentum. At February’s London Fashion Week exhibition at Somerset House, almost a third of showcasing brands had a sustainability focus. SOURCE Summit 2013 will unite leaders from the largest global retailers to the most pioneering brands and suppliers, from all over the world and every part of the fashion industry supply chain, to build upon and accelerate this momentum.

More than 25 business leaders from across the world, from the largest corporates to the most inspiring entrepreneurs and visionaries will be speaking. Some of these include:

-Amber Valletta, international supermodel / actress
-Dolly Jones, Editor of Vogue.com
-Baroness Lola Young, OBE
-Daliah Simble, Head of Sourcing and Production at Roland Mouret,
-Brigitte Stepputtis, Head of Couture at Vivienne Westwood
-Paul Wright, Head of Quality & Ethical from George at Asda
-Bruno Pieters, Founder of Honest by

SOURCE Summit will be held at The Crystal, London - one of the most sustainable buildings in the world. The networking will begin by sailing over the Thames as delegates arrive by cable car, taking in breathtaking views of London. The event will also be streamed online for those who cannot attend in person.

SOURCE Summit will aim to constructively address challenges, share and learn from best practice and innovation. The day will include inspirational speakers, focused forums, tailored networking and in-depth master-classes. SOURCE Founding Partner businesses and organisations will exhibit at the heart of the venue.

We will also be discussing the Bangladesh garment factory collapse of April 2013, lessons learned and how to move forward as a collaborative industry response. 

Over the last year, through our groundbreaking events and dedicated research, we have seen that the industry’s foremost leaders, large and small, are integrating sustainability at the heart of business practices. The most pioneering brands and suppliers are proving that best practices can transform livelihoods for thousands.

Despite this, unsustainable business practices remain endemic across the fashion industry as a whole. A living wage is far from a reality for the majority of workers, and the industry remains on a par with the chemical industry in terms of environmental damage. Better practices across the fashion sector as a whole will lift millions out of poverty.  SOURCE Summit 2013 aims to catalyse positive change, bringing together the key players that will accelerate the industry towards this goal.
