ARLINGTON, Va., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ATK (NYSE: ATK) today released its Fiscal Year 2014 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report.
The report highlights ATK's efforts in FY14 to make a positive impact in seven categories: safety, ethics and compliance, community service, military support, STEM education, environmental stewardship, and employees and the workplace.
"Responsibility is an integral part of ATK's culture," said Mark DeYoung, ATK's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our company plays an important role in the communities where we do business, and as such, we have an obligation to our customers, our neighbors and our employees to be a good corporate citizen."
The company's ethics, safety and environmental sections align with ATK's strategic vision to operate at the highest standard of integrity, ethics and governance and to maintain industry-leading safety and environmental performance.
"At ATK, our ethics motto is 'Do Right,' with a focus on integrity in everything we do," DeYoung said. "We are also committed to protecting the environment through stewardship programs and maintaining our industry-leading safety performance."
ATK's community service efforts are structured into three focus areas: support of the United Way; support of military members and their families; and support of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education.
"ATK employees generously support the United Way, with contributions this past year totaling more than $1.2 million across the company," DeYoung said. "We also continued our robust program to help support military members, wounded warriors and their families through events with the USO, the Grateful Nation television program and a $200,000 donation to the Folds of Honor Foundation."
In FY14, ATK formed a STEM network to better align the various STEM education projects occurring across the company.
"ATK is committed to promoting STEM education in local communities," DeYoung said. "By engaging with students and giving them opportunities to see STEM in action, we are helping to inspire the next generation of innovators and explorers."
