Brand dubs certification a milestone in it journey to sustainability.
The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has announced Pandora the latest company to achieve its certification, meeting the highest ethical, social and environmental standards established by the RJC’s Member Certification system.
Michael Rae, chief executive of the RJC, said: “RJC warmly congratulates Pandora on its certification. The successful verification assessment was conducted by Peter Warbrick from SGS, one of the independent third-party auditing firms accredited to the RJC’s Member Certification system.”
The Danish bead brand, which sells in more than 65 countries through more than 10,000 points of sale, recently opened its first Pandora concept store in Italy, a market it said was of importance to the brand as the centre for jewellery in Europe.
Claus Teilmann Petersen, Pandora’s vice president of group corporate social responsibility, said: “The successful RJC certification is an integral part of our social responsibility strategy, and it marks an important milestone in our journey towards full sustainability.
"Also, our group-wide certification scope demonstrates our determination to raise the bar for responsible business practices throughout the jewellery value chain.”
