Issued by National Vision
National Vision, Inc.’s inaugural Corporate Responsibility report sets a trajectory for ESG activities and commitment to disclosure and transparency.
National Vision, Inc., America’s second largest optical retailer, released its first Corporate Responsibility Report, “A World Worth Seeing,” as part of its ongoing efforts to increase transparency in its environmental, social and governance (ESG) activities.
“As a low cost healthcare provider to primarily uninsured Americans living on tight budgets, our business provides an inherent social good,” said CEO Reade Fahs. “This report is National Vision’s first attempt to lay out in detail all the things we are doing to be responsible citizens and to bring eye care and eyewear to low income Americans and people around the world.”
Highlights from "A World Worth Seeing" include:
“Our stakeholders are increasingly interested in the role of ESG activities,” said Jared Brandman, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, of National Vision. “Our commitment to corporate responsibility is built into the core of National Vision’s business and identity, and we are excited to have the opportunity with this inaugural report to share a more comprehensive view."
To address areas of most relevance for its investors and stakeholders, the report is aligned with recognized guidelines, such as the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
