The signatories include Adidas, ASOS, Bestseller, DK Company, H&M, Inditex, Kering, Marks & Spencer, Target and VF Corporation. They have committed to defining a circular strategy, to setting targets for 2020 and to reporting on the progress of implementing the commitment.
Many summit guests put used clothes in a huge recycling bin at the entrance of the Copenhagen Concert Hall. The symbolic message was that by disposing of garments in a recycling bin, the participants actively showed their support for accelerating the transition towards a circular fashion system and our Call to Action for a Circular Fashion System.
The Copenhagen Fashion Summit also introduced Solutions Lab, an exhibition space that presented some of the latest innovations that address sustainability in the fashion industry, one of which was Dutch Awearness.
The aim of Dutch Awearness is to support European corporate wear and workwear companies in the transition towards a circular economy. Since the aims of Dutch Awearness are to secure materials for the future, decrease various kinds of environmental pollution and to build bridges between state-of-the-art research and practical relevance, they want to collaborate closely with industry partners.
At Solutions Lab, Dutch Awearness presented its circular textile solutions created in collaboration with various partners, including fully recyclable workwear and circular composites - products made from post-consumer textile waste and used plastics.
Additionally, for every dance performed at the summit, C&A Foundation donated €50 to Remake, an initiative designed to ignite a conscious consumer movement. (KD)
