Seeing the light: Sustainable sun lenses from biobased material

August 9, 2021 |

In Italy, a partnership between Kering Eyewear and Zeiss Sunlens has successfully developed sun lenses from biobased materials. 

The new lenses will be used with the Kering Eyewear FW21 line of glasses. The lenses have also been certified by European Commission’s REDCert program, although details on the raw materials were not disclosed.

“Kering Eyewear and Zeiss both have sustainability and corporate responsibility anchored in their strategies as a priority,” says Dr Matthias Metz, President and CEO of Zeiss Vision Care. “As a company with a foundation as sole owner and a heritage of more than 130 years of corporate responsibility, we are taking sustainable actions throughout our entire value chain on our way to carbon dioxide neutrality in all our activities by 2025.”
