Making a difference
By Essilor News
In true Essilor spirit, our entities across the world have mobilized since the beginning of the crisis to support global Covid-19 relief efforts. Demonstrating our unparalleled collective power, together we have been able to donate close to 1 million protective equipment to support healthcare systems, patients and communities across the world.
At Essilor, we stand in solidarity with all those who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic around the world. Thanks to our country teams, online businesses, Essilor Vision Foundations and with the support of Vision For Life, we have been able to donate close to 1 million protective equipment including face masks, as well as goggles and face shields to protect frontline workers around the world.
Beneficiaries include local hospitals and frontline workers such as healthcare personnel, firefighters, caregivers, and security forces. Other donations include protective gloves, hand sanitizing gels and non-prescription glasses.
“I am very proud and truly impressed by the hundreds of initiatives that have been launched by our teams across the world. It is another example of how at Essilor we are able to use our unique collective power and global presence to offer direct support to our stakeholders and the communities around us. Together, we are making a difference.” said Paul du Saillant, CEO of Essilor International.
