IN DEPTH: Swarovski is on a mission to drive sustainable sparkle

Executive board member, Nadja Swarovski, tells Professional Jeweller: “A commitment to sustainability and positive social impact has been in the DNA of Swarovski since my great-great-grandfather founded the company in 1895. In striving to use responsibly sourced materials we are following our own cultural values, and we are committed to driving positive change within our industry — inspiring the designers we work with to embrace sustainability through education and material support. The company’s current crystal collections feature Swarovski Advanced Crystal, the world’s first lead-free crystal, which is produced responsibly, with 1/3 of the energy from renewables and 70% of the water use met through recycled sources".
