UN Sustainable Development Goals

We have assessed Pandora’s opportunities to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have concluded that our business aligns most closely with four of the goals. 

In particular, we support SDG 12, Responsible Consumption and Production, through our sourcing of 100% recycled silver and gold for the crafting of our jewellery as of December 2023.


Gender equality

We are committed to advancing inclusion and diversity through our efforts to fulfill the targets in our inclusion and diversity strategy, our responsible sourcing programme, our integration of human rights in company processes, and our partnership with UNICEF to support girls’ education and empowerment.

SDG Targets
5.1 End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere.

5.5 Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision- making in political, economic and public life.


Affordable and clean energy

We are committed to using 100% renewable electricity at our crafting facilities and are exploring options to build additional onsite solar capacity. We are also committed to transitioning energy consumption in retail stores and distribution centres to renewable sources.

SDG Target
7.2 By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.


Decent work and economic growth

Across offices, stores and crafting facilities, we strive to provide safe and healthy working conditions for more than 30,000 employees. Through our Responsible Sourcing Programme, we monitor working conditions at our supplier locations.

SDG Targets
8.5 By 2030, achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value.

8.7 Take immediate and effective measures, to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.

8.8 Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, in particular women migrants, and those in precarious employment.


Responsible consumption and production

We continuously work to reduce our wider environmental footprint, focusing on water usage and waste at our crafting facilities, using recycled raw materials and other circular practices. We are accountable for our actions and publish an annual sustainability report detailing our work towards becoming a low-carbon, circular, inclusive, diverse and fair business.

SDG Targets
12.5 By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.

12.6 Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.


Climate action

We are aligning our activities with the Paris Agreement by setting a science-based target in line with a 1.5°C trajectory and by setting a net zero emissions goal for 2040. We disclose our emissions footprint and help to educate stakeholders on how to reduce our shared footprint.

SDG Targets
13.2 Integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning.

13.3 Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning.
