Many studies indicate that a moral basis, company vision and values are
the best forecasters of a companys survivability. Moreover, over time it is
recognized that respected and successful companies are those fostering
an atmosphere of caring for the communities in which they live and work
while at the same time preserving environmental resources.
Accordingly, the social responsibility values, well-established in Elbit
Systems, constitute an integral part of our make-up and strength.
Elbit Systems is engaged in a wide variety of advanced electronic and
electro-optical technologies, for the worldwide defense market. Among
other activities the Company focuses on developing systems for defense
needs, avoiding friendly fire, as well as reduction of civilian casualties.
Our approach to social responsibility represents a broad range of values
and methods of operation and is reflected in our organized activities
Within this framework, one of our most important issues is contributing to
our community including initiatives in the area of technological education
as well as contributing to the welfare of the Israel Defense Forces.
Indicative of this, is the Adopt a Combat Unit project, reflected in the
strong links between our Company and the combat units we adopt .
As King Solomon said: Educate children each in their own way, even
when they grow old they will never deviate from this path. We have
chosen, as a leading technological company, to provide funding for, and
open windows of opportunities regarding, technological education for
youth, thus stimulating their curiosity and providing them with tools and
skills that will lead to a journey, which hopefully they will continue to follow
for the benefit of their future.
In this spirit, the Company is implementing several ongoing projects,
thanks to our employees who view this as a mission.
Giving is the basis for receiving. Activity in the spirit of environmental and
social responsibility in the communities where we operate, constitutes a
cornerstone of the Company’s philosophy for more than 40 years of its
existence and for the coming years as well.
As Elbit Systems President, I believe the following social responsibility
