For the 4th year in a row, Essilor has been listed to Forbes magazine's world's most innovative companies. Essilor is France's third most innovative company, just behind Hermès (13th) and Iliad (29th).
This continuing acknowledgement is recognition of the Group's strategy – a Group that invests more than €150 million per year in Research and Innovation. Products launched less than four years ago account for 40% of Essilor's sales and more than 100 patents in 2013. On a global level, the Group ranks 49th on Forbes’ ranking – a list that also includes companies such as Unilever, Amazon and Netflix.
