October 9th is World Sight Day – an annual event organised by the World Health Organisation to highlight the importance of good vision. It’s become an important date for Essilor. With our mission – ‘improving lives by improving sight’ – and our position as a leader in the vision care industry, we take seriously our responsibility to raise awareness and encourage examinations by eye care professionals.
On 20th August, a team from Essilor joined 1500 adults supporting Secours Populaire’s annual event to give disadvantaged children the opportunity to go on holiday for a day. Some 5000 children from across the Paris region travelled to the Normandy coast to have a day at the seaside before their return to school.
The jury of the 2014 trophies of the Annual General Meeting Grand Prize has awarded Essilor the Corporate Governance Award, this Tuesday, 8 July 2014, during the annual Europlace International Financial Forum in Paris.
