Sustainability platform ‘ONE VISION’ by HOYA VISION CARE
HOYA Vision Care has launched a sustainability program called ‘One Vision’. Embedded in its corporate strategy, it is designed around the company’s ambition to become a more connected, conscious, and impactful organization, focused on a better tomorrow. The purpose driven program based on three pillars: Environment, Community and Workplace has been successfully running internally for more than a year. With the increasing effect of global climate change, HOYA Vision Care states that the company is committed to taking the critical steps needed to have an impact through science-based actions. The Environment pillar initiatives focus on C02 emission reduction, waste prevention and environmental protection and employee safety and health.
HOYA is committed to improving lives by ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to clear sight. The Community pillar will focus on bridging the vision care gap addressing the estimated 2.2 billion people who have vision impairment or blindness. According to a recent Global Eye Health Report nearly half of these cases could be prevented or corrected with proper access to vision care. Through local initiatives HOYA will promote vision care screenings and provide glasses to disadvantaged communities.
“HOYA’s One Vision, three-pillared, sustainability program aims to address the impact we as a business have on the world, with our employees, our communities, and the planet ensuring we are operating every aspect of our business in a sustainable, accountable manner,” said Alexandre Montague, CEO of HOYA Vision Care. “As a global business, we have a clear responsibility to focus on climate change, work with and give back to the communities where we operate including reducing the vision health gap and to build a strong, highly trained workforce filled with career opportunities to ensure a robust future. We have all of the pillars in place and are excited to continue on our One Vision journey.”
