Giving Back to Our Communities
“It is the duty of every ethically sound company to support environmental
and social projects.” The founder of the company, Daniel Swarovski,
set the precedent by conducting business in accordance with the criteria
of sustainability – behavior that has since matured to become a core
competency of the company.
Today, the bond between Swarovski and water has deepened further,
as can be seen in many of the projects at the company. The best-known
program is the Swarovski Waterschool, which has been a remarkable
success story since its introduction at the Hohe Tauern National Park in
Austria in 2000. Since then, four further Swarovski Waterschools have
been set up: along the Ganges in India in 2006, the Yangtze in China in
2008, the Nile in Uganda in 2009, and the Amazon in Brazil in 2014.
The Waterschool’s objectives are educating children on the principles
of sustainable water use and enabling communities to solve their waterrelated challenges as well as to contribute to a world where all people
have access to safe and reliable water and adequate sanitation. They
learn how to use water sustainably and, in so doing, how to promote the
responsible use of this precious resource. The Waterschool program is
financed by Swarovski, the company, as well as by the Swarovski Crystal
Society (SCS) and its 300,000 members worldwide.
In Liechtenstein, we sponsor local community activities such as the Vaduz
Film Festival, the Liechtenstein Guitar Festival, and several other events.
