This guides our strategy, inspires our approach to sustainable development and ultimately drives our ambition to help eliminate uncorrected poor vision in a generation. Good vision is a basic human right. It has the power to unleash our full potential, allowing us to learn better, keep us safe and promote a more inclusive society. Yet uncorrected poor vision affects 1 in 3 people around the world.
Driven by our strong Mission to help people ‘see more and be more’, we created the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation, which aims to help eliminate uncorrected poor vision by 2050 by raising awareness on the importance of good vision and creating sustainable access to vision care.
It is the largest foundation in the world driving inclusive vision care access, unites all of the Group’s global advocacy and philanthropic actions, as well as provides a platform that harnesses the commitment of our employees and partners. The Foundation’s global actions include creating sustainable access points; innovating for affordable solutions; funding subsidized and free services, advocacy and awareness; driving engagement; and creating partnerships to enable like-minded non-profit organizations and governments to expand access to vision care.
As a powerful advocate for the vision cause, a passionate campaigner for greater awareness and a pioneering innovator with solutions and styles that bring ever-greater improvement, we are dedicated to elevating the importance of good vision as both a basic human right and a key lever for global development. Following the launch of our groundbreaking roadmap "Eliminating Poor Vision in a Generation" at the UN General Assembly in 2019 with the support of more than 20 NGOs and leaders in eye health, EssilorLuxottica celebrated in 2021 the announcement that the UN member states unanimously passed the “Vision for Everyone” resolution to make eyecare globally accessible by 2030.
