On Monday 3 October, ABDO hosted the second SEE Summit on the Environment. The event launched with an inspiring video, provided by Millmead Optical Group, showing attendees the potential for change, and showcasing the artwork made from lens waste that Millmead is collaborating on with sustainability designer Yair Neuman.

ABDO President Daryl Newsome provided further inspiration in his introductory talk, highlighting the pressure the world is under and giving those watching the context of the need for change.

This was followed by a fact-filled educational talk from Thiago Gentile of Planet Zero, providing the inside take on carbon footprinting.

Munish Datta, Director of Sustainability for Specsavers Group then took viewers through Specsavers’ sustainability strategy worldwide.

Questions came in thick and fast throughout the event, and the panel session between ABDO’s sustainability campaign lead Antonia Chitty, a researcher from the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Rosie Hilson, Jayne Abel, Sustainability Lead for the Optical Suppliers Association, and Sukie Woodhouse whose practice has the dual accolade of a Gold Award from ABDO’s Thinking Green campaign alongside the Green Mark, gave participants the chance to hear some answers. Topics discussed varied from recycling packaging and lenses to eco-friendly lens and frame options.

All too soon the event had to end, and ABDO’s Vice President Kevin Gutsell drew things to a close with thanks to all who took part. He urged everyone to take action, and use the resources supplied on ABDO’s SEE Hub to ensure that the optical community makes positive changes together for our future and for that of the planet.
