Annual Report 2020

3. Our presence

By following our growth strategy and continuing to expand our presence, we improve our customers' access to high-quality, affordable eyecare products and services through our retail network of 7,260 stores. We support this strategy with our robust omnichannel platform and more than 39,000 employees; nearly 45% who are professional eyecare specialists.

We use our dedicated omnichannel platform to serve customers in their local communities where we are based and contribute to global social and environmental causes, too. This includes the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3, 8, 7 and 12, which support responsible consumption patterns, the importance of good eye health and vision and road safety.
