Sustainability at Essilor

Essilor’s mission, combined with the company’s unique principles and values, are at the heart of the Group’s long-term commitment to sustainable development. Our strong growth in recent years and our leadership position means we continually seek to raise our standards of corporate citizenship.


For nearly 170 years we have been creating value for our full ecosystem of stakeholders, from employee shareholders to eyecare professionals to the millions of people who wear our lenses. It’s because our business serves an essential mission – improving lives by improving sight.


We have set ourselves targets for 2020 in key areas of corporate social responsibility– from our Group mission for visual health, reducing our environmental impacts to engaging our employees and ensuring responsible sourcing.


Essilor’s success is inseparable from the work of all our employees who participate, whatever their role, in developing, producing and marketing innovative products and services. Representing the company’s greatest asset, we are committed to providing employees a safe and rewarding work environment, in line with our principles and values, and to constantly seeking to unlock their full potential.


Our manufacturing activities have already substantially reduced their environmental impact. Today we continue our efforts in five priority areas: strengthening environmental management processes, reducing water usage and securing supplies, improving energy efficiency in manufacturing and transportation, reducing carbon footprint and adapting to climate change and limiting waste generation and optimizing recycling.


As a responsible company, we have based our success on careful consideration of our local impacts, the respect of human rights, dialogue with our stakeholders and the creation of shared value with our partners, suppliers, as well as with governments and local communities.
