Why is the 202030 Summit unique? 

202030 – The Berlin Fashion Summit offers a holistic perspective on sustainability in fashion, with an uncompromising emphasis on always pushing innovation further, and finding the greatest positive impact.  

Join us to be part of the bridge-building between sustainability knowledge and market experience. Here, you will find the opportunity to benefit from the open discourse between all stakeholders.

The Time is now…

With only seven years until 2030, the year by which we must meet global climate-saving goals, the 2020’s are destined to be a decade of ‘glocal’ changemaking. The time is now to fuel the transformation of the diverse sustainability movements with research and science-based targets into market-leading standards for the fashion and textile industry.
