By engaging in external partnerships PANDORA gains valuable insights into critical factors shaping our business environment, such as legislation, mining practices, industry dynamics, marketing ethics and consumer expectations. Our engagement spans from active membership of – and communication through – the United Nations Global Compact and the Danish Business Network for Human Rights (DBNHR) to community engagement at our Thai crafting facilities, support to charitable organisations and dialogue with the millions of consumers that has signed up to our social media platforms. As members of the steering committees for both the Danish UN Global Compact network and the DBNHR we seek to learn from and influence the ethical performance of other Danish companies.
Like PANDORA, our strategic partners, such as Disney and Signet, also have strict ethical requirements of their business partners. This means that our crafting facilities in Thailand, as well as relevant suppliers and subcontractors are subject to audits and approvals by these partners before a final business contract can be signed, and are subject to frequent audits hereafter.
