Our programme to use recycled metals in accessories is well under way. Any time that we can offset the extraction of virgin materials from mines, is a win for the planet.
This can take us to some unexpected areas. Last year we introduced recycled palladium from catalytic converters used in healthcare. In a new lease of life, they found their way into our accessories.
Currently, 22% of palladium coating used for our metal accessories is recycled.
Our commitment is to maximize the use of recycled metals in all our products by 2025.
