Corporate Social Responsibility

As a global leader in optical retailing, we acknowledge the responsibility we carry towards economic development, improving the quality of life of our customers and employees, and creating value in the communities in which we are present.

Over the years, we have embraced many CSR activities and initiatives that have also been an important part of our business strategy. Our aim is to build on the progress we have made by giving further and more explicit attention to a number of CSR topics that we consider to be most material to our business and our stakeholders.

In delivering our products and services, we take into account all dimensions of value-creation, including quality, innovation, availability, social responsibility and price. We have therefore drawn from these existing commitments to further strengthen our overall CSR ambition, which is rooted in our promise: EYE CARE, WE CARE MORE.

As part of this effort, we will publish our first dedicated CSR reporting 2017. The report will present the progress we make against our CSR ambition. For this report we have adopted Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G4 Guidelines, the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting. To gain a good understanding of the issues that are most material to our stakeholders we have conducted a comprehensive stakeholder engagement exercise.
