At Leonardo DRS, we believe that in order to succeed as a company, we must remain a strong and positive contributor to the communities where we do business and do everything we can to protect the environment. Sustainability to us means an enduring and comprehensive commitment to corporate social responsibility, including investing in our people, fostering innovation, lending support to our communities, and doing our best to protect the environment. Our performance in this area is one of the major reasons that our parent company, Leonardo S.p.A, was named the aerospace and defense industry leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index last year.
Leonardo DRS has taken decisive action to enhance our commitment to responsible consumption, workforce diversity, employee education, and corporate social responsibility. For example, we enacted a Sustainability Risk Management model to develop a supply chain that meets the needs of Leonardo DRS today, yet protects our resources and the environment for tomorrow’s generations. To ensure a safe workplace, we pinpoint physical risks and hazards through a highly collaborative team approach, identifying and communicating solutions to create a work environment that puts the physical safety of our employees first.
Creating a more sustainable business is a never-ending journey to align the company’s core values and strategy with its broader commitments to the environment, the communities where we do business and the welfare of our own fellow teammates. Total success can only be achieved with an eye toward the future and the next generation of leaders who will carry forward the great heritage of Leonardo DRS for many years to come.
