PANDORA

Energy effeciency in manufacturing

PANDORA experienced a sharp increase in demand and produced approximately 106 million pieces of jewellery in- house in 2016. At the same time, the greater complexity and intricacy of our jewellery designs have made it challenging to simultaneously reduce our energy and water consumption at our crafting facilities. With the new Leadership in Energy and Environment (LEED) certified crafting facility in northern Thailand and another LEED certified crafting facility currently under construction in Bangkok, we expect to be able to significantly improve our environmental performance in the years to come.

While striving to minimizing the environmental impact from all our activities, we pay special attention to reducing energy consumption and thus lower the amount of CO₂ emissions to our surroundings. 

The largest part of CO₂ emissions are coming from the result of electricity consumption from our modern jewellery casting equipment and from air conditioning for the benefit of our people. Emissions also originate from our own bus services that provide safe, effective and energy efficient transportation to and from our production facilities for more than 9,700 colleagues.

While air conditioning and bus services are responsible for a substantial part of our CO₂ emissions, they are staff benefits that we are not prepared to abolish. Therefore, our efforts to minimize our environmental footprint primarily rely on our ability to raise the effectiveness of energy usage such as introducing effective cooling pad systems in our production.

Further, our energy management processes at PANDORA’s manufacturing facilities are certified against the ISO 50001 standard on energy management.
