TRANSITIONS OPTICAL CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY

We invite you to take a look at our Corporate Sustainability Report to see how Transitions Optical is committed to the sustainability of our communities, our industry and our planet.

Sustainability is part of our business strategy. We consider ourselves stewards of the planet’s resources. In 2010, we spent much time and effort researching new ways to increase efficiency by using less energy, water and other resources to make our product. We cut down on waste, encouraged recycling and helped to enhance the quality of life in our communities.
