Today, Vista Outdoor Inc. released its 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, highlighting the company’s efforts on safety, ethics, environmental stewardship and conservation, and community service. The report can be viewed at: www.vistaoutdoor.com/social-responsibility.
“Being a responsible corporate citizen is a priority at Vista Outdoor and part of the company’s culture,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark DeYoung. “We stress safety in our workplace and in the use of our products. We take pride in our commitment to ethics and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. We believe in being good stewards of the environment, both through our business practices and in promoting conservation through partnerships with other organizations. And we embrace the idea of ‘giving back’ – helping those in need in the communities where we live and work.”
In February of 2015, Vista Outdoor spun off from Alliant Techsystems (ATK) to become an independent, publicly traded company. Some of the programs and entries found in this report refer to when Vista Outdoor was ATK’s Sporting Group.
“Although Vista Outdoor is a new company, founded in February of 2015, we have a legacy of responsibility through our brands and corporate leadership that dates back decades,” DeYoung added. “Whether it’s through scholarships and programs for military members and their families, partnerships with the Boy Scouts and other service organizations, or our corporate-wide United Way campaign, Vista Outdoor’s employees have embraced social responsibility and take pride in their efforts.”
Vista Outdoor brands such as Federal Premium, Bushnell and Savage Arms are also featured throughout the report.
