We unlock innovation by empowering employees

Viasat非常重视多样性, equity, and inclusion (DEI) empowers individuals and unlocks innovation. 2023 saw a renewed focus on DEI to help ensure our employees have an inclusive and equitable environment that encourages diverse perspectives, 促进公平, and promotes the inclusion of new ideas and viewpoints. 

 

From education and culture to talent acquisition and development, we continue to find new ways of helping our employees be the best versions of themselves through programs and benefits focused on:

  • 越来越多的技能

  • 促进健康和保健 

  • 保护人民的生活方式

  • 为他们的未来做准备 

  • 找到平衡

 

 

数字包容 is our mission, our business — and our legacy

数字包容 helps improve lives by providing better access to healthcare, 教育资源, 经济机会. But for the nearly half the world that doesn't have reliable access to high-quality, 负担得起的网络, 这些机会根本就没有.

 

Viasat brings connectivity when and where it's needed most. 与主要合作伙伴合作, we’re going beyond the connection to help unserved and underserved communities around the world get online — and to make the most of those online resources. 这是我们的使命. 这是我们的事. 这是我们的遗产.

我们用更少的东西连接更多的东西

我们采取全面的, bottom-up approach to environmental management that identifies and deploys solutions tailored to the unique challenges of each individual worksite. 

 

过去的一年, 我们加大了对员工的关注, 客户, and supplier engagement as part of our environmental-management efforts. We went beyond addressing scope 1 and scope 2 emissions to now identify, 披露, 目标范围3排放. 再进一步, we have verified our emissions for the past two years; see more information in our 23财年温室气体清单报告.

 

When it comes to energy and climate concerns, we’re thinking big. We operate with sustainability in mind — not only at the worksite, local, 在全球范围内, 但即使在太空中. We are outspoken advocates of mindful resource utilization in space, and regularly publish industry-leading research on the topic. As Viasat's global footprint expands, the team is focused on ensuring responsible growth. 展望未来, this includes greenhouse gas reduction goals, 增加可再生能源的使用, and formalized approaches to mitigate the impact of our products and packaging. 

 

We're putting forward new solutions to keep space sustainable

Viasat is committed to ensuring the sustainability of the shared and limited parts of space. We believe Low-Earth orbit needs particular attention because it’s the area where most satellites are now being launched, and we risk saturating the capacity of those orbits within this decade, 这可能导致:

  • 大大增加了碰撞的风险
  • Overfilling to the point where space is closed to new applications,
  • 使空间更加脆弱
  •  Harming the environment, including light pollution and damage to the atmosphere.

Viasat is helping move the discussion from one focused on developing an understanding of the problem to one focused on solution — including economic incentives to encourage good and responsible behavior, as well as suitable checks and balances to ensure a few do not spoil things for everyone else.

诚信和道德的行动

Ethics and integrity are the cornerstones of our business. We are unyielding in our commitment to infusing ethics and integrity throughout our daily operations, 公司治理, 监督, 问责制, 和透明度.

 

These cornerstones extend to how we engage with our stakeholders. 我们接受他们对商业的看法, 策略, 薪酬制度, 以及治理——并发出声音, strategic adjustments in response to stakeholder feedback. This includes our Board’s choice to appoint a lead-independent director to further strengthen 监督.

 

Stakeholder engagement is just one of the many checks and balances we use to ensure we’re operating with the ethics and integrity that we’re known for, while continuing to create long-term value for our shareholders.
