Our CSR Ambition
Our CSR Ambition is rooted in our promise that in EYE CARE, WE CARE MORE.
With our global presence, we not only contribute to economic development – we also create societal value through our Community Involvement initiatives. As we deliver our products and services, we take seriously our responsibility to operate in a sustainable and ethical manner with all our stakeholders seriously. We focus on being a responsible employer, on responsible sourcing and on managing our environmental impact throughout the value chain.
Our CSR Ambition is based on an internal assessment of our value chain and an analysis of the external factors that influence our business, such as local legislation, and the needs of our stakeholders and customers. Stakeholder consultation and an internal materiality analysis are presented in our 2016 CSR Report. This has contributed to the selection of the themes that are most important to our organization and which we believe are also significant for our stakeholders.
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
Through our 2016 CSR Report we inform our stakeholders on the impact we create within these four focus areas. We will further operationalize our CSR Ambition and CSR management control framework by setting targets and measuring our progress against these objectives.
