Here at CooperVision, we’re taking steps in our manufacturing and distribution to operate more sustainably where possible. We are striving to eliminate waste and unnecessary packaging to reduce our environmental impact.1

Through our Sustainability Innovator Series, we'll share stories of people in a wide range of roles throughout our global organization who contribute to our environmentally sustainable efforts, big and small.


Our teams at CooperVision are taking steps to reduce plastic’s footprint.*2,3 By exploring ways to transform the way plastic is made and preventing plastic’s diversion into nature,†4 we’re reimagining what’s possible for plastic.

Meet some of the minds behind this work and see what inspires us to evolve toward a brighter tomorrow. 

Plastic Neutrality


Creating A Wave Of Change


Plastic Made Better




From conservation efforts in Puerto Rico, to earning LEED Gold certification in Costa Rica, and receiving a BREEAM certified “Excellent” rating in the United Kingdom, we’ve been recognized for our ongoing dedication to sustainability in the many places we do business.


A brighter tomorrow starts with all of us, today.


* According to peer-reviewed papers, polypropylene (PP) made using renewably sourced inputs yields a lower carbon footprint. CooperVision's plastic supplier has found that manufacturing PP using fossil-based inputs produces 1.63 kg CO2e/kg PP whereas manufacturing PP using plant-based inputs produces -0.82 kg CO2e/kg PP.
