As part of the FIA’s #Raceagainstcovid initiative, 10,000 protective glasses were distributed to 38 hospitals and medical centers across 4 continents.
Essilor firmly believes in the power of collaboration, made more necessary by the COVID-19 crisis. Essilor and FIA have been partners since 2017, actively raising global awareness on the impact of vision for a safe mobility and promoting together the “Check your vision” golden rule, along FIA national automobile clubs. After recently joining the United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF), Essilor is currently campaigning for a safe recovered mobility, as populations are getting back on the road after lockdown.
This builds on the Essilor Group’s other initiatives: through the collective power of its local subsidiaries, it has provided more than one million protective equipment to front line workers in order to support Covid-19 relief efforts (safety goggles, masks, gloves…).
Essilor Group stands in solidarity with all those who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic around the world.
From ensuring employees’ safety, to providing generous financial support and in-kind donations to support the Wuhan region as well as other areas in need, Essilor Group together with its partner entities have activated quickly to help address the outbreak.
