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 previously used in healthcare, into our accessories range.
Currently, 66% of palladium coating used for our metal accessories is recycled and traceable; a significant increase from 22% in 2017.
Our commitment is to maximize the use of recycled metals in all our products by 2025.
