(ANSA) – MILAN, MAY 25 – EssilorLuxottica launches OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation to relaunch the commitment of the lenses and eyewear group to realize its mission of helping people, everywhere in the world, to “see better and live better”.
It is an important pillar of the lenses and eyewear group’s sustainability strategy to support and promote vision as a fundamental human right. OneSight brings together the main advocacy and philanthropic actions of the Italian-French company. The announcement was made in parallel with the shareholders’ meeting. The appointment was used to take stock of the accounts and prospects of the group, little impacted by the conflict in Russia and Ukraine where it makes only 1% of its revenues, “For now we are confident and happy with the results we are having”, said CEO Francesco Milleri on the trend of 2022. While EssilorLuxottica continues to look to the M&A it excludes acquiring fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani. “It is not in our DNA. If we entered – and we have no intention of it – in the world of luxury we would begin to compete with all the licenses that rely on us for the eyewear category. He would like to have discussions or greater difficulties in relating with Chanel, Bulgari, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Michael Kors, “Milleri said. (HANDLE).
