For the third time, Copenhagen Fashion Summit will take place in the spring of 2014, marking the one-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory accident in Bangladesh. Since the catastrophe, a long line of initiatives have been set in motion. First and foremost with a focus on improving safety and working conditions for the employees in Bangladesh’s thousands of clothing factories, but also to promote greener manufacturing.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit is the world’s largest and most significant event on sustainability and social responsibility in the fashion industry under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. With prominent speakers such as Vanessa Friedman from Financial Times, Marie-Claire Daveu from Kering and Livia Firth from Green Carpet Challenge, the coming Copenhagen Fashion Summit will highlight the global fashion industry’s most innovative solutions to its critical environmental, social and ethical challenges.
