Giving back to our communities and reducing environmental impact

GrandVision has an active CSR Ambassador community with representatives across our countries of presence, as well as members from our strategic functions such as Product Value Chain, Finance and P&C. This group aligns stores and offices around the world to deliver on ESG objectives, increase our philanthropy efforts and report on our progress.

 

Fostering a culture of inclusion and diversity

GrandVision's goal is to foster an inclusive culture that enables our ambition to grow and support a diverse workforce. One of the major topics on the current agenda is gender diversity and equality. Gender equality is a fundamental human right and a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. GrandVision’s female employees are an integral part of our business and are vital to our commercial success. We want to make sure they get the same chances to grow, develop and thrive as their male counterparts.

 

Reducing environmental impact across operations

With our presence across more than 40 countries, our operations contribute to a large part of our carbon emissions. To meet our global alignment on this topic, all of GrandVision's retail brands have already launched, or are launching, various waste, paper, plastic and other resources reduction initiatives.

 

Giving access to high-quality affordable as well as free eyecare

Our CSR Ambassador community continues our mission to give back to people in communities where we are based and raised more awareness about important eyecare causes. Through our global charitable outreach we have been able to:

  • Organize mission trips closer to home to donate:
    • Free eye tests
    • Eyecare equipment
    • Eyeglasses
    • Contact lenses
    • Protective gear to communities in need and COVID-19 pandemic first responders
    • Raise thousands of euros for communities in need and nonprofit organizations


We also join forces to raise awareness about eye health and global social causes important dates throughout the year.
