Does Swarovski have an Environmental Report?

Swarovski has a Sustainability Milestones page and a recent Sustainability Report. Swarovski shares its targets for packaging and recycled materials, as well as evidence of progress for previous targets.

Because of the amount of detail, which demonstrates Swarovski’s commitment to environmental progress, the brand receives a top rating in this category.

Are Swarovski’s diamonds and gold responsibly sourced?

Swarovski diamonds are grown in laboratories, resulting in a top rating in the Responsible Diamonds category.

Additionally, as the majority of the company’s gold is recycled, Swarovski receives a middle rating for Fairtrade (which is awarded to companies that use Fairtrade or recycled gold).

What can Swarovski do to improve its score? 

Swarovski’s above benchmark score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Jewellery Ethical Ratings Table is the result of an assessment of multiple ethical criteria.

Swarovski is encouraged to apply for Ethical Accreditation. If successful in its application, Swarovski would join the certified ethical brands leading the way in progressive and sustainable practices and be permitted to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark in its communications.
