Pandora is now recycling 81 percent of its production waste at its facility in Thailand, an increase of 24 percent compared to 2013, the company shared in its 2014 Ethics Report.
The company also shared that it is now recycling 100 percent of its glass, rubber, and gypsum waste, its three main waste products. The glass waste is recycled as glass tiles; the rubber waste is used as an alternative fuel source in the cement industry; and the gypsum is recycled in the construction sector, it reported.
The Thai government honored its achievement with the 2014 Three R’s Award, which recognizes good practice in resource management.
“In this year’s report, we share our commitments, efforts, and achievements to develop and manufacture our product with integrity, to provide a great environment for our people, and, finally, to minimize our environmental impact on the planet,” said CEO Allan Leighton.
The report is the company’s fifth annual report on corporate social responsibility.
