On September 2015, 193 United Nations member countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. These sustainable development goals address the growing complexities of global and interconnected challenges requiring multi-stakeholder involvement.
At Essilor, we believe business has a significant role to play in solving these sustainable development challenges. Currently we contribute to 13 of the 17 sustainable development goals through both our core mission of improving vision and our management of impacts along our value chain.
The 13 goals we contribute to are: No poverty, Good health, Quality education, Gender equality, Clean water and sanitation, Renewable energy, Good jobs and economic growth, Innovation and infrastructure, Reduced inequalities, Responsible consumption, Climate action, Peace and justice, and Partnerships for the goals.
