Code of ethics
The Group of companies that includes Luxottica Group S.p.A. and its subsidiaries, is an international enterprise that operates in a range of constantly, rapidly evolving institutional, economic, political, social and culture contexts.
In light of the complexity of the situations in which we do business, it is important to clearly define the core set of values that Luxottica acknowledges, accepts and promotes and the responsibilities assumed both internally and externally.
This is why Luxottica has developed this Code of Ethics which contains a set of principles and rules that are essential for the proper functioning, reliability and reputation of the Luxottica Group.
The Code of Ethics seeks to ensure that propriety, fairness, integrity, loyalty and professional rigor guide transactions, conduct and the way of doing business both inside and outside the company, by placing respect for the laws and regulations in the countries in which the Luxottica Group operates, as well as respect for company procedures, at the center of attention.
The Board of Directors of Luxottica Group S.p.A., in accordance with best-in-class corporate governance standards, adopts this Code of Ethics in order to affirm the aforementioned principles of ethics and transparency, as well as to reconcile the search for competitiveness with the need for fair competition.
Luxottica shall closely monitor compliance with the Code of Ethics by preparing adequate means of information, prevention and control and ensuring that the transactions and conduct engaged in are transparent, intervening, where appropriate, with corrective measures and, in cases of violations, disciplinary sanctions.
The Code of Ethics also represents the first of the safeguards underlying the Organizational Model adopted by the Company pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001 (the administrative liability of entities for criminal offenses), of which it is an integral part. The violation of the principles and rules set out herein may thus result in serious consequences for the Company, including pursuant to the above Decree.
Approved by the Board of Directors of Luxottica Group S.p.A. 01/29/2016
