Corporate Social Responsibility
AeroVironment was founded on a vision of applying aerospace technology to pressing environmental challenges. Fifty years later, our commitment to environmental stewardship is enshrined in our purpose statement: to secure lives and advance sustainability through transformational innovation.
In line with these founding principles, AeroVironment has become one of the largest electric unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) manufacturers, delivering a suite of zero-emission, energy efficient, battery-powered UAS as well as stratospheric, solar powered UAS for global connectivity. These highly efficient solutions not only reduce energy consumption, but by virtue of their portability and simplicity, also minimize their operators’ logistical footprint and associated environmental impact.
We also demonstrate our commitment to sustainability through our corporate responsibility efforts. We are committed to conducting business in an ethical, environmentally sensitive and proactive manner, consistent with our commitment to corporate citizenship and social responsibility.
Our goals are to conserve natural resources and minimize waste through source reduction and recycling; handle and dispose of waste through safe, environmentally responsible methods; and encourage energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. We will ensure that our employees, stockholders, customers, and suppliers are aligned with the objective of advancing sustainability.
