The Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018, which was held on May 15 and 16, 2018, in Denmark, has taken its next big step towards sustainability. The summit launched a brand new component, Innovation Forum, an exhibition space for sustainable solutions, in order to address the urgent need to support and accelerate the decision-making process for fashion businesses.

With 50 exhibitors, including some of the most noteworthy sustainable solution providers to the fashion industry, such as ISKOTM, I:CO, Piñatex, Econyl, and Sustainable Angle, to name a few, summit participants had an excellent opportunity to meet with sustainable providers covering the entire value chain.

Eva Kruse, CEO of summit organiser Global Fashion Agenda said, “Previously, the summit, with all its inspiring and thought-provoking speeches, panel and roundtable discussions, primarily centred on words, but we felt that the time was right to add more action to the event. With the new exhibition space, we’ve made it easier for our guests to actually take the next step, to go from words to action, and to accelerate their sustainability journey.”

Around 1,300 key players from more than 50 countries across the globe representing the fashion sector, politics, NGOs, academia, and the media gathered for the sixth edition of the world’s leading annual business event on sustainability.

Wrapping up two days of intense leadership roundtables, conversations, and business meetings, was a panel discussion featuring the Strategic Partners of Global Fashion Agenda: Kering, H&M, Target, Li & Fung, and Sustainable Apparel Coalition, who took the stage to address why sustainability should be a leadership priority and to discuss some of the recommendations from the recently released Pulse of the Fashion Industry 2018 report.
