Recognising the need for urgent action, we are committing to the following goals:
- Carbon neutral in our own operations by 2025
- Using 100% renewable energy at our crafting facilities by 2020
- Setting a science-based target to reduce emissions across our full supply chain
Pandora jewellery is designed with great attention to sustainability. Our hand-finished products make a difference in the industry, on the high street and to the environment in which we operate. Every Pandora customer can be confident in the quality of our jewellery as well as the materials we use to craft each piece. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they live up to our ethical standards concerning human and labour rights, environmental impact and fair and honest business practices.
Growing in all categories
While Pandora is growing in other jewellery categories like necklaces, rings and earrings, the charm bracelet is still the our best-seller, accounting for nearly three quarters of revenue. In 2018, Pandora sold more than 280,000 pieces of jewellery per day.
Our modern crafting facilities in Thailand, located in Bangkok and Lamphun in Northern Thailand, provide safe, healthy and engaging working conditions for more than 14,000 people. Today, Pandora is the largest manufacturer of jewellery worldwide. Our fully-owned crafting facilities sit under the Pandora Production Thailand (PPT) umbrella. With two LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) crafting facilties, our consumption of energy and water is considered highly efficient and well below the average in the luxury, apparel and accessories sectors.
Pandora was the official sponsor of the Youth Fashion Summit (YFS) 2018. The YSF is a sustainability education and idea-generation platform, giving students moving into the fashion industry a platform, tools and the opportunity to influence the decisions that will be made today and felt tomorrow.
We actively strive to attract and retain a highly talented, passionate, diversified and confident pride of individuals capable of designing, crafting and selling our jewellery through more than 7,700 points of sale worldwide, of which 2,700 are Pandora Concept Stores.
Our crafting facilities in Thailand are certified according to some of the highest health, safety and environmental standards, and our craftspeople are offered safe, developing job opportunities and competitive wage and benefit packages, which include healthy meals, bus transportation and maternity classes.
Having worked with a responsible approach to crafting since Pandora was founded, the principles of the UN SDGs are embedded in our company. We respect our people, craft with integrity and strive to minimise our environmental impact. We focus our efforts on the seven goals where we believe our business can have the largest positive, as well as lowest adverse, impact.
