IADS Exclusive: Global Fashion Summit 2023: The clock is ticking

IADS Exclusive July 2023 Kaitlyn Lim

The IADS attended the 2023 edition of the Global Fashion Summit which took place from June 27th to the 28th in Copenhagen. This year’s theme was “ambition to action” and was an opportunity for industry leaders and professionals to share their knowledge, tools and experience to help shift the industry from vague aspiration towards concrete implementation to achieve a net-positive industry.

The overall tone of the summit was rather ominous - the clock is ticking, as 2025 sustainability targets are approaching quickly and seem unachievable, 2030 targets are the new focus as the global climate emergency becomes more pressing, and the fashion industry is not moving fast enough. In efforts to push the industry forward, the conference was an opportunity for industry leaders to share actionable case studies, step-by-step guides and conversations aimed to simplify complex topics. The IADS highlights the key takeaways and important resources for our members below.

IADS provides its members with a weekly in-depth analysis on retail-oriented topics. This is an example of the themes the Association regularly addresses, and the topic of an article from the IADS members-only newsletter date 26 July 2023.
