Swarovski and BSR Announce Collaborative Sustainability Project
 

The ‘Women in Jewelry’ project, which began in January 2018, aims to deliver in-depth research on the current status of women in the global jewelry supply chain.

Following an initial report this Spring, with a focus on the mining, cutting and polishing, and jewelry manufacturing sectors, Swarovski and BSR will convene leading jewelry companies in April in Paris to review the findings and garner support for further field research. This collaborative approach will help deepen insights and lead to recommendations for how companies can identify, create and implement opportunities for women in jewelry supply chains.

Swarovski is committed to promoting and advancing a responsible jewelry industry, using the strength of its brand to drive positive change. This ambitious project will create a non-competitive space for brands to come together to collaboratively seeks solutions.

Women are present throughout the jewelry supply chain, from mining to manufacturing, and in artisan to large-scale production. Swarovski recognizes that advancing equality and enabling women to fulfil their potential is not only good for business, but also has a positive impact on society.

Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board, commented: “We are pleased to partner with BSR to take a leading role in advancing women’s empowerment within the jewelry industry. Promoting equality is at the heart of our sustainability agenda, and we look forward to inspiring collective action to drive positive change with this important project.”

Aditi Mohapatra, BSR Women’s Empowerment Director, commented: “While women make up a vast majority of the consumers of jewelry, very little is known about the challenges facing the women behind the products in the supply chain. We hope this partnership both raises awareness of the barriers these women experience and catalyzes industry-wide action to eliminate gender gaps. Our research shows that there are many opportunities for companies to get involved, and we hope more will take action.”
