Commitment to Excellence

An important part of being a socially responsible company is having an unwavering Commitment to Excellence. This characteristic, something beyond words, something we can proudly stand behind, is what makes Luxottica a company that employees want to work for and other companies want to do business with.

Perhaps it is rooted in our Italian heritage, where craftsmanship not only refers to the masterful art by which eyewear is made, but also the art of how Luxottica conducts itself as a leading global business, being made up of people of substance.

This is where a Commitment to excellence starts, with people constantly committed to being the best version of themselves and delivering the best products and services possible. Luxottica provides an environment where excellence is the rule and an uncompromising set of values and principles guide every decision and action.

Woven into the fabric of Luxottica from its humble roots to its current day global presence, Commitment to excellence is evident in the following areas:

  • Product. Luxottica is known for creating the world’s most beautiful eyewear. But its commitment to product excellence goes deeper than aesthetics.  When customers purchase a pair of prescription frames or sunglasses, they are getting a unique product made with the highest standards of quality.
  • Market expansion. Luxottica enters and grows in every market with a local-first mentality.  This means developing a true understanding of and respect for the local culture, landscape, workforce and consumer needs. The Group’s commitment to being a good partner to local businesses, hiring and training local talent and protecting the local environment is a shining example of excellence and has earned Luxottica its reputation across regions.
  • Compliance & Risk management. Luxottica’s Code of Ethics is at the heart of its commitment to excellence. Employees are called upon to act with integrity and professionalism inside and outside the Company, following not only the laws and regulations of the regions where they operate, but also Luxottica’s own high standards of conduct. This not only reduces business risk and protects the reputation of the Company and its brands, it inspires a kind of success driven by doing the right thing, on behalf of the Company, the community and the consumer.

A Company open to the world

The spirit of excellence in the DNA of Luxottica can be seen in its ability to expand the world over while respecting local territories and cultures, an extraordinary source of stimuli and a wealth of prospects, characterizing each new area the Group makes contact with.

The specific knowledge acquired abroad provides precious information and a continuous incentive for improving production and services, helping to understand and anticipate future trends, and diversifying production to meet the needs of different markets.
