RESPONSIBLE & ETHICAL JEWELRY STANDARDS
At Pandora, we believe that responsible business practices and our aspiration to offer high quality, affordable jewellery go hand in hand. That is why we are committed to developing and manufacturing PRODUCTS in a responsible manner; to providing a great environment for our PEOPLE; and to working towards minimizing our environmental impact on the PLANET.
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure their business activities comply with our ethical standards within human and labour rights, safe working conditions and environmental impact, as well as fair and honest business practices.
As part of our responsible supplier programme, we train and audit suppliers, engage in close dialogue, and provide extensive support to ensure that all our suppliers live up to our strict requirements.

We acknowledge that the manufacturing of jewelry has an impact on the environment. We work hard to minimize this footprint by reducing our consumption of water and energy. Further we recycle waste materials from the production process. Thus gypsum is turned into bricks and broken pieces from the Murano glass is turned into tiles, all used in the local construction sector.
