Global Fashion Summit

Copenhagen Edition 2024

Global Fashion Summit is presented by Global Fashion Agenda (GFA) – a non-profit organisation that fosters industry collaboration on sustainability in fashion to accelerate impact. With a 15-year foundation as the leading forum for sustainability in fashion, Global Fashion Summit is synonymous with the sustainability zeitgeist.

Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition 2024 presented three days of action-oriented content on 21-23 May across a range of prestigious Copenhagen locations. 

  • Pre-summit activities on 21 May included productive roundtable meetings and networking events for speakers, partners, and premium ticketholders. (Location: TBA) 
  • The core Summit days of 22-23 May presented inspiring solutions and informative content sessions for all ticketholders at the magnificent Copenhagen Concert Hall. 

Unlocking the Next Level

With deadlines for pledges made over the previous 15 years looming, the industry must now implement further actions that ambitiously address societal and environmental impacts and challenge the existing paradigm.

The fashion industry is operating in turbulent times. But instead of becoming an afterthought, sustainability must be framed as a strategy for industry resilience. Global Fashion Summit will offer a moment to reenergise industry efforts: taking stock of change that has happened and can happen if we unlock it collectively. We are already in a climate crisis and the age of concepts and commitments is over – it is time to see near-term goals be implemented.

15-Years of Activating Impact

The 2024 Summit marks a significant milestone for GFA, as it signifies 15 years since the inaugural Global Fashion Summit (formerly, Copenhagen Fashion Summit) was hosted in 2009. The forum has evolved into an unmissable date in the fashion calendar for those wishing to stay ahead on sustainability priorities, gain tangible updates on policy developments, explore new innovations, and reflect on sociocultural influences in the ever-changing fashion landscape.

The Summit’s extensive programme will be structured around unlocking solutions to fashion’s biggest sustainability barriers, no matter where on the sustainability journey your organisation is. With a continued commitment to innovation and accelerated action, our global sector’s most credible visionaries will take to our historic stage and speak to the transformative shifts required to take fashion’s sustainability impact to the next level.

Recognising that everyone is operating from a different baseline, Global Fashion Summit content will be tailored to suit the needs of those across a vast sector spectrum. Intersectional solutions and diverse knowledge inputs are needed to reach our vision of a Net Positive industry.

Let this Summit serve as an inflection point as we work to unlock a flourishing fashion industry which cultivates prosperity for our planet and its communities. By convening fashion’s most creative vanguards, you can expect rich dialogues and case studies that will leverage the next level for our industry.
