Sustainability

EssilorLuxottica brings together both Essilor and Luxottica’s long history of sustainable development in action and a shared commitment to place ethics and responsibility at the center of all stakeholder interactions.

We believe business has a significant role to play in solving the main challenges which the world is facing today. With its Mission to help people “see more, be more and live life to its fullest”, EssilorLuxottica naturally pledges to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals which form the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

Three fundamental sustainability pillars support our Mission and guide us in our efforts to create value in the communities where we do business around the world: people, environment and society.
