Gathering key industry players at Copenhagen Fashion Summit is an important step in the right direction. It's important to push for a sustainable agenda as an industry and Gucci - which not only is a luxury fashion leader, but the most responsible player in its sector as well, paying since the beginning a sincere attention towards people and environment, enhancing a sustainability value across all of its operations - is happy to take the helm of this process.”

Consumers can play a pivotal role in transitioning the fashion industry towards more sustainable business models. The Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012 is adressing how the industry can raise awareness and interest amongst consumers to choosing sustainable fashion and sustainable consumption of fashion.
