Every two years, a full sustainability report is published. This year's fifth sustainability report covers information and performance data on the operations of the Swarovski Crystal Business. We provide detail on the evolving nature of our strategic approach to sustainability, which represents the beginning of a new phase in Swarovski’s sustainability journey. Since we are now embarking on this new phase, the focus is on our progress updates concerning the headline activities and achievements in 2017 and 2018.
In its 2017 sustainability report Swarovski outlined a refreshed strategy and in the 2019 report, Swarovski highlights many activities the business has engaged in, that align with its five strategic pillars that include Women’s Empowerment, Fair Partnerships, Water Stewardship, Conscious Design and Sustainable Innovation as well as improvements in operational sustainability.
We have also produced a detailed index, guided by the GRI Sustainability Report Guidelines and contains Standard Disclosures from the Guidelines, as a supplement to this report. In addition you can download previous reports.
