Every two years, a full sustainability report is published. This year's fourth 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 2015 and 2016.
The scope of reported quantitative data has been increased in 2015 – 2016, expanding the number of major sites reported from nine to ten. This includes all of our own manufacturing and production locations: Wattens in Austria; Subotica in Serbia; Triesen in Liechtenstein; three sites in Bangkok in Thailand; Plattsburgh in the USA; Pune in India; Bien Hoa in Vietnam and our corporate offices in Männedorf in Switzerland.
We have also produced a detailed index, guided by the Global Reporting Initiative G4 Guidelines, as a supplement to this report. In addition, you can download previous reports.
