As the world's largest jewelry maker, we are determined to reduce our climate footprint and committed to being carbon neutral by 2025. Discover our sustainable practices.
At Pandora, we are committed to moving further towards circularity in our materials and waste e.g. using silver and gold that can be infinitely recycled.
Recycling rate of 88%
In addition to reducing carbon emissions, we continuously work to reduce our wider environmental footprint. Last year, 88% of waste at our crafting facilities was recycled.
Pandora’s crafting facilities in Thailand are among the most modern and energy efficient in the industry. To reach our goal of using 100% renewable energy, we will first increase our own production of green power by installing solar voltaic panels at our crafting facilities. At the same time, we are committed to reducing or recycling waste materials and water at our crafting facilities.
Pandora for UNICEF
Pandora and UNICEF have partnered to support the most vulnerable children, especially girls, around the world, in leading healthier and safer lives and to fulfill their potential. The aim of the three-year partnership is to raise funds for UNICEF to empower children and young people by supporting UNICEF programs for education, gender equality, rights awareness, personal empowerment and civic engagement.
Our presence in Thailand
Our crafting facilities in Thailand provide safe and healthy working conditions for over 10,000 employees. On top of a competitive salary, employees at our crafting facilities benefit from extensive professional and personal development training, parental classes, access to library, on-site canteens and free bus transportation to and from work.
Impact through suppliers
We aim to work with suppliers that share our commitment to sustainability, and in 2019, Pandora took steps to better align our responsible sourcing program with our sustainability ambitions. Our category-specific approach to responsible sourcing seeks to continuously improve our performance around three objectives: responsibility, traceability and transparency.
Sustainable development goals
Pandora supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Four goals in particular guide our strategy as this is where we can contribute the most.
We are an inclusive brand committed to advancing equality and diversity through e.g. our partnership with UNICEF by funding program that support girls’ education and empowerment.
Decent work and economic growth
Our modern crafting facilities in Thailand provide safe and healthy working conditions for employees with wage levels and benefits above local jewelry industry average.
Responsible consumption and production
We are committed to making circularity central to how we design, craft, source and offer our jewelry, e.g. we use recycled metals in our jewelry, and the majority of our crafting waste is reused.
We are intensifying our climate efforts by committing to become a carbon neutral company and set a carbon emission reduction target in line with the Paris Agreement and the best available science recommendations.
