Swarovski Lighting have always been a brand to present themselves with an unparalleled sense of excellence. The high quality they cultivate is present not only in their every design, but in the very materials they use to construct them, and right down to the processes and methods of functioning.
When Daniel Swarovski opened the brand's first production site high in the Austrian alps, he led his company to practice sustainable methods by relying on energy from the nearby rivers to manufacture his famous crystals. To this day, water continues to play a large part in Swarovski Lighting's production processes, encouraging the whole of the lighting industry to better understand, and start to eradicate, the fresh water challenge at hand.
Giving back to the world that surrounds them is a value that Swarovski Lighting pursue in everything they do. Dedicated to renewable energy, specifically water power, as they are, it's no surprise that the brand are big ambassadors of World Water Week.
The aim of World Water Week is simple: to raise awareness for the globe's water issues. This year, the initiate addressed the theme of water and waste, reducing and reusing. This is a procedure that Swarovski implement throughout their supply chain as a component of the Water Stewardship approach.
Committing the brand to work towards minimising the environmental impact of operations and increasing overall efficiency, this is a programme purpose constructed to encourage environmentally responsible behaviours - a priority Swarovski Lighting take very seriously indeed.
Deepening Swarovski’s sustainable roots in a society ensures that the company functions in a purposeful way. Sustainability reflects on the brand’s vision of a responsible company that not only has its employees’ well-being at heart but also that of the environment and humanity as a whole.
