  9. 9. Overview of the ProjectIn April 2011, Luxottica has launched the Zero Waste initiative with the aim tocreate a change and a transformation in the way the Company will conduct thebusiness in the next 50 years. Some of the project key objectives are: to transform Luxottica culture, building a new long term perspective on the sustainability of the business towards both the environment and the Company. to build a new culture of collaboration and innovation, preparing the ground for wider changes and dissemination of new approaches
  10. 10. The Zero Waste project: sponsorship  We must efficiently use the resources we have, reduce consumption where we can, and invest in areas that will create value for our company as well as help our planet.  The key to long-term success lies in the way we use, or waste, our resources.  It depends on everyone’s contribution to be truly successful
  11. 11. Social Innovation as “change agent”Within the Zero Waste project, one of the most significant element of change andtransformation introduced has been a collaborative social platform to share, discuss andrate innovative ideas and contribution. The “Lux Idea Lab” platform, based on a “crowdsourcing” approach, was introduced to a select number of innovators within the company with the specific aim to establish a culture and to fine tune a solution.

  19. 19. Affinity: identifying environmental impact & priorities Environmental practices Packaging & Factories (infrastructure) Transportation Packaging Factories Transportation Working environment Other Every node is a respondent (a total of 393). The colors represent here the first priority for each respondent. Clusters emerge whenever respondents have similar response patterns (i.e. they chose the same priorities in the same order). Four groups can be clearly seen: on one side Environmental Practice (soft factor) on the other Packaging & Transportation (hard factor). These two opposites are “linked” by a more “generic” priority such as Factories. The last group is less focused on a specific priority, although with a slight Working bias towards Working Environment. EnvironmentEnvironmental & Other Practice
