PANDORA

Water

Water is becoming a still more scarce resource and at PANDORA we are committed to reducing the amount of water we use in our production processes and to ensure an efficient use of this vital resource. 

As a result of our new crafting facilities, our growth and new jewellery categories, our water consumption at PPT increased from 584,108 m³ in 2016 to 630,289 m³ in Bangkok and adding 196,000 from our new facility in Lamphun in 2017.

In 2016, we invested in additional on-site waste water treatment at our Bangkok facilities, drastically improving the quality of waste water. The disposal of waste water is subject to control by both our own SHE team and local authorities, and is audited by external experts as a final check. Our new facility in Northern Thailand had a clear focus on water usage and recycling from the very construction phase. This approach is expected to result in a reduction in water consumption by more than 70% compared to a traditional jewellery crafting facility and a water recycling percentage of 45%.

We expect a continuous increase in both energy and water consumption as our strategy is to keep growing within rings, earrings and neckwear, which are resource intensive categories to craft. We will partly offset this by resource efficiency initiatives; Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified crafting facilities and improved production processes.
