Response by Pandora
We are happy to share with you our approach and professional efforts within the field of human rights:
- We welcome the report from Human Rights Watch, and are pleased to see that our efforts in the area of human rights in supply chains are noted.
- Responsible business practices have always been an integral part of our company. As one of the world’s largest jewellery companies, we contribute in raising the ethical standards of the industry and transparency within our own supply chain. We are committed to United Nations Guiding Principles for Businesses and Human Rights, and work actively to advance human rights on different levels of engagement.
- PANDORA is deeply engaged in the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC). The recent revision of the RJC Chain-of-Custody standard for gold, launched January 2018, was done by the Standards Setting Committee under the chairmanship of PANDORA.
We released our Ethics Report 2017/18 recently where you will find detailed information and cases from our global business: http://pandoragroup.com/CSR/Publications
