Kering X Global Fashion Agenda
Kering has been unveiled as a strategic partner of Global Fashion Agenda, to lead the global sustainability conversation and create a platform to share new industry standards.
As a channel to convey expertise to fashion executives and creatives, Global Fashion Agenda takes sustainability out of the lab and into the boardroom thereby influencing decision-making at both a strategic and operational level. Its flagship initiative, the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, convenes global fashion players, industry stakeholders, NGOs, policy-makers and academia annually in order to discuss how the fashion industry can shape the world beyond the next season.
Under this new partnership, Kering will support the Global Fashion Agenda in the creation of a knowledge platform and co-develop yearly recommendations that will be put forward to the entire industry to encourage tangible action. The partnership will also see Kering share its sustainability expertise and concrete learnings from within its brands during this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Summit, to be held on 11 May 2017 in Copenhagen Concert Hall under the patronage of HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.
"We have carefully selected the strategic partners due to their explicit commitment to create positive change and thus their ability to push the industry towards a more sustainable future. They will come together to openly share their strategic priorities and expertise and provide thought leadership on what it takes to drive intelligent progress in the industry," says Eva Kruse, CEO & president of Global Fashion Agenda and Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
