DENMARK: H&M and Kering to speak at sustainability summit
Executives from H&M, Kering and the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety are among the speakers lined up for this year's Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
The biennial event, which claims to be the world's largest event on sustainability in fashion, will be held at the Copenhagen Opera House on 24 April.
This edition will highlight the fashion industry's most innovative solutions to tackling critical environmental, social and ethical challenges.
By concentrating on solutions, the event suggests it is no longer enough to just acknowledge the challenges facing the global fashion industry, but is instead essential to begin the sustainable transformation of the sector.
Speakers include Helena Helmersson, head of sustainability at H&M; Marie-Claire Daveu, chief sustainability officer and head of international institutional affairs of Kering; as well as Alan Roberts, executive director of international operations for the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety.
Keynotes will also be delivered from Jason Kibbey, executive director of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition; Eva Kruse, CEO and president of Danish Fashion Institute; and Livia Firth, creative director of brand consultancy firm Eco-Age.
"It is our hope that the keynotes will inspire and influence the wide spectrum of industry representatives that have already signed up to participate, from the luxury segment key players such as Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren and Alexander Mcqueen to the commercial key players like Inditex and Bestseller," explains Eva Kruse, CEO of Danish Fashion Institute, the organisation behind the fashion summit.
"Why? Because we need the entire industry to be a part of this agenda."
