The Essilor Group’s success relies on a value-creation model, guided by principles followed by all employees, as well as values inherited from the foundation of our Group back in 1849.

Principles that guide
our daily actions

We aim to be exemplary in the way we do business, and act for the benefit of society, through shared trust, mutual respect and in a spirit of partnership. These principles are followed wherever we operate, respecting of local laws and through applying high standards, ever attentive to human relations and the responsible and careful use of resources.

Choosing the Essilor Group as a partner has enabled us to evolve from a locally-focused management culture to that of a multinational Group, chiefly through the sharing of certain common values. We have near-daily discussions and exchanges which are always open and in mutual respect and trust.

Our values: Working together, Innovation, Respect and trust, Entrepreneurial spirit and Diversity.

our mission

Our principles and values have ensured the success of the Group for more than 170 years. They both power our performance and define our identity. Today both are fully focused on fulfilling our mission: improving lives by improving sight. Integrated in all aspects of our company, they unite and strengthen us. Our values help set us apart from our competitors and accomplish our mission.
