PANDORA has since 2010 been a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), and the entire company has been externally certified according to the RJC Responsibility Standards. The RJC is a full member of the ISEAL Alliance – the global membership association for credible sustainability standards. In 2016 the RJC accounts to more than 850 dedicated companies from across the jewellery supply chain. PANDORA is seated in RJC’s Executive Committee and has been elected as chair of the multi stakeholder Standards Committee. Here we facilitate the cooperation between responsible brands, independent jewellery experts and NGOs.
In 2016 the Standards Committee started a review process of the RJC standards to ensure that they always reflects the most ambitious ethical performance. Further, the committee recommended the RJC to expand its scope from gold and diamonds to also include coloured stones and silver.
