Viavi Solutions has published its annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, demonstrating its commitment to creating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and enhancing sustainable business practices and community engagement by maintaining strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
“The VIAVI Executive Leadership Team and the Board of Directors have made great strides in expanding our robust CSR and ESG initiatives, all the while widening our understanding of diversity to embrace not only identity but also the practices and behaviors that create the right environment for people to succeed,” said Oleg Khaykin, President and CEO, VIAVI. “We have successfully transformed VIAVI into a formidable market leader in many of the most exciting technology growth areas in the market today. We remain focused on helping our customers succeed and recognize that steadfast focus on CSR and ESG accelerates our ability to deliver on that promise.”
VIAVI’s environmental initiatives tackle issues spanning climate change and sustainability and include focus areas like energy efficiency, materials sourcing, water conservation, carbon reduction, and waste management.
As an international company, VIAVI drives continuous improvement in the diversity, equity and inclusion of its people capital ecosystem – employees, partners, vendors, and board of directors.
In 2021, VIAVI established a Global Human and Labor Rights Policy, setting forth its unwavering commitment to universal, fundamental human rights and the dignity of labor. VIAVI also established DEI pillars with specific goals in the areas of Leadership, Culture and Talent, including supporting employees through training and leadership development initiatives as well as leveraging early-career programs to help identify and attract diverse candidates early on.
In partnership with the Silicon Valley Foundation, the company expanded its Employee Disaster Relief Program to include a broader set of events that are eligible for grant relief, including COVID-19.
VIAVI furthered its commitment to the highest standards of business ethics and corporate governance, including demonstrated business practices, tools, training, and communications.
VIAVI added two highly respected female industry experts to the Board of Directors in the past three years.
All VIAVI employees and the Board of Directors are expected to adhere to our comprehensive Code of Business Conduct and receive training annually on the Code as well as other important governance and compliance topics.
