Essilor and FIA Renew and Deepen Partnership to Lead Global Change on Vision and Safe Mobility

Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety, and Paul du Saillant, CEO of Essilor International, recently met at the FIA headquarters in Paris to continue driving together a global change on the importance of vision for safe mobility.

The meeting between the two leaders served as a springboard to further accelerate the existing collaboration by putting a focus on projects aimed to deliver visual equipment, in addition to rolling out new advocacy initiatives. Check out the video below.

Commenting on the vast potential ahead for this partnership, Paul du Saillant said: “By leveraging our expertise, innovation, brands, and inclusive business program, we are helping drivers, bikers, cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the road safely thanks to good vision. By doing so, Essilor further strengthens its commitment to the FIA and the United Nations Road Safety Fund.”

Essilor and the FIA plan to:
● Provide FIA clubs with preferential access to adequate vision care solutions for their members through offline and online offers
● Collaborate in the distribution of glasses to road users in need, in developing countries by involving national FIA clubs
● Establish a collaboration between FIA and Essilor’s instruments division to define, improve and promote appropriate eye exams for drivers
● Examine the possibility of Essilor’s involvement in FIA championships
● Explore a further collaboration by leveraging the Helmet Industry Working Group outputs.
