The Sustainable Angle at Copenhagen fashion Summit
Since its first edition in 2009, Copenhagen Fashion Summit has established itself as the world’s leading business event on sustainability in fashion. Convening major fashion industry decision makers, the multi-stakeholder event – regularly referred to as the Davos of the fashion industry – has become the nexus for agenda-setting discussions on the most critical environmental, social and ethical issues facing our industry and planet.
The Sustainable Angle is looking forward to showcasing a curated selection of commercially available, sustainable textiles and innovative materials from our Future Fabrics Expo. This is supported by the Lenzing Group. We will be showcasing in the Innovation forum at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit on the 15th and 16th of May 2018 at the Copenhagen Concert Hall.
We offer solutions to materials sourcing with a lower environmental impact which contribute to fundamental, transformative change in the fashion industry starting NOW. Since 2011. we have promoted and supported the diversification of the global fibre basket with a consistently updated broad and varied range of sustainable materials shown in our Future Fabrics Expo in London which has been visited by thousands of visitors over the last 7 years. Our mills and producers demonstrate more responsible practices, and offer solutions by providing materials with reduced environmental impact, contributing to more transparent and sustainable supply chains.
The Future Fabrics Expo is also showing educational background information alongside the materials on display. Each fabric and material has individual sustainability information attached. Each sustainable material has the contact details of the supplier clearly shown. The criteria by which we select the materials are shown as well as the certifications per material are displayed.
Ahead of the summit, the Global Fashion Agenda debuts a new report aimed at fashion executives, called CEO Agenda, highlighting seven core priorities, urging immediate action and transformational priorities from fashion industry leaders. Representing Transformational priority number 4 ‘sustainable material mix’ from the CEO Agenda we support the Sustainable Materials category by showing a curated selection of commercially available materials from the Future Fabrics Expo supported by Lenzing Group
