For eleven years, the Agefi awards recognise the best examples of corporate governance among companies listed on the Paris stock exchange. Analysts and finance sector professionals voted on a shortlist of five companies selected for each category.
Responsible corporate citizenship has for many years been a guiding force for Essilor in the way it builds its business around economic, human, environmental and good governance considerations. This award underlines the close alignment between the Group’s strategy, corporate citizenship and mission to improve lives by improving sight.
In 2014, Corporate Knights ranked Essilor International for the second year in a row as one of the 100 most sustainable companies in the world, reaffirming the Group’s commitment to strike the right balance between people, planet and profit. Essilor is a long-term signatory of the UN Global Compact and is the only company in its industry to be part of five social responsibility indices.
