Water Partners & Programs

Daniel Swarovski understood that if a business is to thrive, so must the environment and people on which it depends. In 1895 he set up his workshop in Wattens, Austria, where mountain streams offered plentiful water for the cutting process, and a source of clean renewable power through hydropower. Five generations later, the same un-spoilt Tyrolean valley remains the headquarters of the family company.

The desire to take care of the natural world remains central to Swarovski’s ethos, and
the Foundation builds on this legacy by supporting projects and organizations that promote the protection of the environment.
