At this difficult time, the safety of our people remains our priority and we are providing all the support possible to our affected teams in the region.

Looking at our financial results, 2021 has been an extraordinary year for EssilorLuxottica. In the face of a continuously challenging environment, we managed to grow our sales and profits beyond pre-pandemic levels, meeting our guidance on sales and exceeding it on operating margin. In 2022, we continue to move full speed ahead, thanks to the trust of our customers and partners, and the commitment of our teams, now including our 39,000 GrandVision employees as part of our family. Our innovations and brands, like Stellest, Ray-Ban Stories and Transitions XTRActive, as well as still top-performer Oakley, are paving the way for a new generation of life-changing products, while launching entirely new categories that will benefit the whole industry.

As we build EssilorLuxottica at the heart of our industry, we continue to grow as a socially conscious company. Sustainability remains front and center as we reach carbon neutrality in our two historic home countries Italy and France and work towards the next set of milestones. The future we’re building is a future for everyone – the talent, technology and tenacity we have in this moment is very powerful and we will do great things with it."
