The Hong Kong-based global supply chain giant has become a strategic partner for the Global Fashion Agenda

Spencer Fung, group CEO of Li & Fung and Tatler 500 lister, is working towards building a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.

The world’s leading global supply chain manager has become a strategic partner at Global Fashion Agenda’s (GFA) Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018, a two-day event that includes an innovation forum with discussions on sustainable materials, efficient use of water, energy and chemicals, better wages and using digitisation to create a supportive and sustainable revolution within the industry.

"Our vision is to create the supply chain of the future to help our customers navigate the digital economy and to improve the lives of a billion people in the supply chain. Through speed, innovation and digitalisation we are enabling a digital supply chain that allows for end-to-end visibility and data. This digitalisation is as much about enhanced business performance as it is about bringing greater transparency and traceability in the supply chain and that is for the benefit of all our supply chain partners from the customer to the vendor,” said Spencer.

“I’m proud to be part of The Copenhagen Fashion Summit because it is a strong catalyst for industry collaboration and will enable us to push for positive change to build a better, more sustainable future for the fashion industry."

Li & Fung joins Kering, H&M, Target and the Sustainable Apparel Coalition and Bestseller as a strategic advisor to GFA’s Steering Committee.
