CooperVision & Sustainability

 

Good for the planet. Good for business.

We are working to minimize environmental impact and operate more sustainably because it is the right thing to do—for our employees, our customers, our business, and our planet. From production improvements designed to conserve water to efforts that recycle nearly 100% of the plastics used in production, CooperVision is prioritizing environmentally responsible practices across four key areas: water, energy, recycling, and people.
