Our CSR Ambition
We operate in a world driven by constantly changing trends, and therefore we continuously innovate and adapt our business model and develop eye care products and services that meet the needs of our customers. Furthermore, we have always acknowledged the responsibility we have towards economic development, improving the quality of life of our customers and employees, and creating value in the communities in which we are present. Many CSR activities are therefore core part of our business strategy and our daily operations.
Our CSR Ambition is rooted in our promise that in EYE CARE, WE CARE MORE.
It is based on an internal assessment of our value chain and an analysis of the external factors that influence our business, such as the needs of our customers and stakeholders and local legislation. As we deliver our products and services, we take seriously our responsibility to operate in a sustainable and ethical manner. We do so by maintaining a dialogue with all our stakeholders and taking our social and environmental impact into
Since the publication of our 2016 CSR Report we have focused on monitoring our existing activities, while continuing to build on our ongoing commitments. We have updated the materiality assessment we performed in 2016 to validate those areas considered most material to our business from a stakeholder perspective. With the 2017 CSR Report we inform our stakeholders about our activities to achieve our ambitions in its key focus areas, and the impact we create.
Our CSR Ambition addresses four focus areas:
- Improving the quality of life of customers and employees
- Enhancing socio-economic development
- Being a responsible and trustworthy partner
- Minimizing our environmental footprint
