Among the speakers are: Rossella Ravagli, GUCCI; Helena Helmersson, H&M; Rick Ridgeway, Patagonia and Sustainable Apparel Coalition; Holly Dublin, PPR and Bruno Pieters, Honest By.

Rossella Ravagli from GUCCI states that: “The fashion industry has the potential to become one of the innovators in solving the climate changes and social issues globally. 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.”

Alongside the fashion industry, high-level politicians will share their perspectives on sustainable fashion. Participants are: Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action and Ole Sohn, Danish Minister for Economics and Growth.

In addition to that the United Nations will present the first sectorial initiative under their Global Compact Programme targeted the fashion industry: Representing

Copenhagen Fashion Summit is the world's largest and most important conference on sustainability and CSR in the fashion industry. The biennial Summit gathers more than 900 key industry stakeholders to identify new opportunities and forward-looking solutions for the global fashion industry to tackle the growing environmental challenges facing the planet. Comparatively, the fashion industry is one of the most polluting and socially challenged industries.

One solution to a more sustainable fashion industry lies within the theme of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2012: Sustainable consumption. 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.
