For us, an ethical approach is an absolute priority. One that impacts positively not only on our employees, but also on the millions of customers and consumers around the world. Over decades, we have built our company on vertical integration – to allow control at every point of the process. So we are confident we can maintain this ethical approach wherever we do business.
This rigorous approach applies even to our employees. In every one of the EssilorLuxottica’s offices and facilities around the world – from a small plant in Bhiwadi, India to the one million square foot hub in Atlanta, Georgia – the company works hard to provide a culture of well-being and respect for employees and their families. As well as, of course, competitive pay and benefits, safe working conditions and an open-door policy.
The promise EssilorLuxottica makes to its employees is the same one it makes to consumers: your well-being is our business. A big promise – and one that is only possible with a fully transparent supply chain.
Any person who buys a frame or lens, shops in one of the company’s 18,000 locations or gets an eye exam from one of its trusted affiliated doctors, can do so with confidence and peace of mind. And they’ll know the best methods and materials were used, the most advanced technology was employed and the greatest care was given to them as a human being.
Our commitment to ethics extends well beyond our vertically-integrated supply chain and into the surrounding communities. Wherever EssilorLuxottica does business, you’ll find the Company is woven into the fabric of that community. We are there not just as an employer, but also as a builder, a neighbor with common ground and an advocate for local interests. For the Company with a presence in over 150 countries, collectively, our local impact has a global impact.
We are committed to creating a better, more sustainable future for all. With the above, we are proud to be contributing to the below UN Sustainable Development Goals:
