Corporate responsibility

For a company that's serious about acting responsibly, good intentions are simply not enough. Thales has recognised this for some time, progressively embedding corporate responsibility in all its business processes.

“Acting responsibly is part of who we are –
and it’s critical to our long-term success”

We set ourselves apart from the competition in various ways. We deliver cutting-edge satellite technology, for example, and have a unique set of cybersecurity skills.

But we're also different because we place so much importance on ethical conduct and responsible business practices. Everyone is on board, at every level of the organisation.

Our CR Mission:

To be committed to a better future for our people, our communities, our environment and our business.
