What we believe

Viasat believes everyone and everything can be connected — to make the world a better place for all

Viasat is unlocking opportunity for everyone, everywhere

When Viasat looks at the world, we see nothing but opportunity waiting to be unlocked. That's why we're committed to always finding a better way to provide people and businesses with the tools and connections they need to reach their potential, no matter where they live, work, or go. And with the launch of ViaSat-3, we'll have the global reach and unprecedented bandwidth to bring the benefits of connectivity to everyone around the world — on the ground, in the air, and at sea.


We're maximizing our positive impact on people and the planet

At Viasat, we’re brought together by a shared desire to tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges. To bring connectivity where it’s needed most so people everywhere can unlock their potential. And to realize our own capacity to make a difference in the world — in a way that’s sustainable, responsible, and inclusive to all.

From our Chief People Officer

At Viasat, we believe in connections. Connecting people. Connecting technology and business. Connecting communities.


Connections are the bridge to what’s possible, and we are fearless believers in possibility. This is why challenging assumptions and pushing boundaries are core to who we are. It’s what our mission is all about — delivering connections with the capacity to change the world.


The goal of our CSR program is to ensure that as we fulfill this mission, we positively impact our people and communities, protect the environment and our precious resources, and operate with integrity in all facets of our business.


This first step toward CSR Reporting will help us understand how we’re doing in these areas, prioritize improvements, and provide transparency on the issues that are top of mind for employees and stakeholders.
