A crystal company founded in 1895 continues to shine in brilliance. Nadja Swarovski, an executive board member of the company, is set to receive French Arts distinction at the Cercle de l’Union Interalliée in Paris on March 1.
In the brand’s corporate responsibility page located on the website, the executive board alone made important changes to create inclusivity with all customers. In 2014, they pledged support for the United Nations initiative: ‘Women’s Empowerment Principles,’ to have a business that works in an ethical manner and to protect the environment with their use of raw materials in production.
The long-time business is famous for selling memorable gifts as well as working with well-known designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Christopher Kane and late Zaha Hadid. The company has also collaborated with high-status events like the Oscars, which is of their most recent.
Swarovski is the great-great granddaughter of Daniel Swarovski, the founder of the company. She has helped transform the company’s positions to modernize and cater to its current consumer base.
Catherine Pegard, president of the Chateau de Versailles, will be presenting the esteemed French distinction.
