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 transformative 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 innovative vehicles are designed to deliver valuable new capabilities to their users while reducing their footprint and environmental impact.
We are also committed to our corporate responsibility efforts, which include conducting business in an ethical, environmentally sensitive and proactive manner by conserving natural resources, minimizing waste through recycling, disposing of remaining waste through safe methods, and using renewable and clean energy sources when possible. We strive to ensure that all our stakeholders are aligned with our objective of advancing sustainability.
