Setting Goals.

Pandora has announced its commitment to becoming carbon neutral by the year 2025.

The global brand has created dedicated targets to reduce its environmental footprint over the coming years.

By the end of 2020, the company will use only 100 per cent renewable electricity at its two crafting facilities in Thailand. This includes implementing a number of energy-saving measures such as verified solar energy providers.

Before the end of 2021, in line with the Paris Agreement, Pandora will publish its plan to reduce carbon emissions across its whole business.

And in the long-term, the company aims to increase its production of solar power by introducing a policy in which all of its stores run using green power.

The news comes off the back of Pandora’s recycling initiative which sees the company use recycled metals and man-made stones rather than mining for the resources, an action that already reduces the brand’s environmental footprint.

Pandora has found that 90 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions occur outside of its own operations – for example, through manufacturing jewellery parts, packaging, and transporting goods.

With more than 780 companies worldwide already committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Science Based Targets initiative, here’s hoping this move inspires other global companies to set climate change action plans as well.
