Certifications

A key part of Luxottica’s environmental policy is the environmental management, energy, and health and safety system certifications that Luxottica has strived to adopt in all of its sites and offices across the world since 2011.

In 2011 the Company adopted the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System in all its facilities and offices in Italy. The process of obtaining the certification at the other Group sites continued in 2017 with the one in Campinas (Brazil). In March 2018 the facility in Dongguan (China) also obtained the ISO 14001 certification.

Luxottica was the first Italian Company to obtain the ISO 50001 certification (the international standard for energy management issued in June 2011), for its energy management system for the Agordo factory, the Group’s operational core. This was followed in 2012 by the other five Italian manufacturing facilities and the Milan headquarters.

The Group’s sustainability-based approach is also evident in its request for LEED30 , the most prominent energy and sustainability certification standard in the world, presented by the Group for the new logistics hubs of Sedico, Dongguan and Atlanta constructed between 2016 and 2017. Dongguan was the first to receive it, rated at “Gold” level, while the certification process is ongoing for Atlanta and Sedico.

 In fact, the buildings were designed and constructed with respect for the local communities and surrounding ecosystems, beginning with the choice of construction materials used. The monitoring of water and energy consumption, discharges, waste and atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions abides by the Luxottica standards, which are more stringent than local regulations.

 

30. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary certification program relating to the sustainability of buildings from an environmental, social, economic and health perspective. The aspects assessed include energy and water savings, the reduction of CO2 emissions, materials used, choice of site and construction project. Gold level equates to a score of between 60 and 79 points. Platinum is the highest level of certification.
