Corporate Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility

Alcon's Corporate Giving efforts help people around the world by increasing access to quality eye care, driving eye care provider training and skills-transfer and strengthening the communities in which we live and work.

Increasing Access to Quality Eye Care
In many geographic locations around the world, a robust, quality eye care system is often limited or not available at all. That’s why we partner with organizations and support programs that help increase access to sustainable eye care for patients around the world. As a result, hundreds of thousands of underserved patients have received quality eye care services they might not have otherwise received.
Responsible Business Practices
We are committed to demonstrating integrity in everything we do. What we do at Alcon is critical to help people see better; how we conduct our business in the workplace, in the marketplace, and in society determines our success as a business. We believe in conducting our business fairly and ethically and in a manner consistent with all applicable legal and industry code requirements.
 

Alcon Giving
Our corporate giving supports hundreds of charitable organizations, whose programs align with our giving objectives, through monetary donations, product and equipment donations, and associate volunteer activities.

Charitable Monetary Donations
Sight is a precious part of daily life, helping us shop, cook or ride a bike. In many areas of the world, it also enables our life goals, making it easier to complete school, live alone, and earn a living. Yet for many, vision can diminish or be lost entirely.
That’s why Alcon is driven to increase access to eye care. Through our partners, we support programs and services in more than 90 countries that work to improve or restore sight. In addition, we provide funding to uplift the communities where we live and work.
To inquire about Alcon donation programs available in your country, please contact us.
 

 
Charitable Product and Equipment Donations
Alcon donates ophthalmic medicines and devices to local eye care clinics who work to improve and restore vision to patients around the world. Our donations help improve the sustainability of these clinics so they can provide long-term care to more people. We also donate product and equipment to short-term medical missions that deliver eye exams and surgeries for patients and training for local eye care professionals. All product and equipment donations are offered through Alcon Cares.

Accessibility (AODA)

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed in 2005. Its goal is to have a fully accessible Ontario by 2025. In order to achieve its objective, the AODA will establish accessibility standards in the areas of:
  • Customer Service Standard
  • Information and Communication Standard
  • Employment Standard
  • Transportation Standard
  • Design of Public Spaces Standard
Alcon Canada Inc. is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity and are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005).

Alcon Canada Inc. has developed the “Customer Service Standards Policy”, “AODA Integrated Standards Policy” and a “Multi-Year Accessibility Plan” which outlines the actions we will put in place to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.

If you require an accessible format of any of these documents, have any questions pertaining to it or need to make an accommodation request, please notify Alcon Canada Inc. using the following contact information:
