Sustainability governance

Our sustainability governance structure ensures that our sustainability programme meets Pandora’s social and environmental ambitions and supports the business.

Sustainability Board

Pandora’s Sustainability Board, which reports to the Board of Directors, sets the corporate sustainability strategy and roadmap, which is implemented by the Corporate Sustainability team. 

Structure

The nine-member Sustainability Board is chaired by our CFO and includes four other members of Pandora’s Executive Leadership Team. The following corporate functions are currently represented on the Sustainability Board: Supply Chain, Product, Retail, Human Resources, Marketing, and Corporate Communications and Sustainability. Sustainability Board members are responsible for integrating sustainability into the operations of their respective functions with support provided by the Corporate Sustainability team.

Responsible Sourcing Committee

For sustainability-related supply chain governance, we established a new cross-functional Responsible Sourcing Committee (RSC) in 2020. This seven-member committee oversees the implementation of the Responsible Sourcing Policy and Programme, reviews and recommends approaches for the use of new materials, and advises on specific supplier relationships on a case-by-case basis. The RSC is co-chaired by the VP Supply Chain and Director Corporate Sustainability, meets twice a year and reports to the Sustainability Board.
 

Corporate Sustainability team

Pandora’s Corporate Sustainability team, led by the VP Corporate Communications and Sustainability, manages the company’s global environmental, social and governance portfolio and is based at Pandora’s Global Office in Copenhagen. The team reports to the Chief Human Resources Officer, who is a member of the Executive Leadership Team.

A team of Pandora auditors and responsible sourcing experts is based at our local offices in Thailand.
