A Message from our President and CEO
Since the launch of our flagship network in 1985, Discovery Communications has been committed to making a positive impact in the lives of our viewers with the highest quality nonfiction content that engages, enlightens and entertains – empowering people to explore their world and satisfy their curiosity about all of the wonder and diversity that our planet has to offer.
In that same spirit, we understand that Discovery’s impact and potential to make a positive difference in people’s lives extends beyond the screen. Building on the mission-driven nonfiction content that is at our core, we are committed to responsible corporate citizenship, inspiring our viewers with on-air messages, promoting and practicing sustainability for our planet, supporting lifelong learning, working with our partners, giving back to our communities, helping our employees thrive at work, and growing a diverse and successful industry.
Whether it is utilizing the power of video to foster learning in under-resourced countries through the Discovery Channel Global Education Partnership, providing school supplies to in-need children in our local communities, or connecting homeless pets with adoptive families through the Petfinder Foundation, Discovery and its global employees remain committed to the original mission of our Founder and Chairman John Hendricks to both satisfy curiosity and make a positive impact in everything that we do.
The Discovery Impact website provides an overview of some of the initiatives that Discovery and its employees are undertaking in our efforts ensure that our planet continues to be a place of wonder that people around the world have the opportunity to explore and discover for generations to come.
