Greener jewellery crafting

Striving for circularity, we continuously work to reduce and reuse core materials and waste streams.
Our crafting facilities consume over 900,000m³ of water and increasing water recycling is a key priority. In 2019, we recycled 23% of the water used at our crafting facilities.

The crafting of our jewellery generates four main types of process waste: gypsum, glass, wax and rubber. In 2019, we managed to recycle or reuse 100% of these waste streams. Overall, 88% of all waste at our crafting facilities was recycled. We continue to look for ways to reduce waste. In 2020, we will introduce jewellery boxes and bags with reduced plastic content.
