A Message from our President and CEO

David Zaslav Since the launch of our flagship network in 1985, Discovery Communications has been a purpose-driven company 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 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 Learning Alliance, finding forever homes for thousands of shelter pets through our partnership with ASPCA, celebrating girls in local high schools and helping them to improve their self-image with Say Yes to the Prom, or volunteering annually in the communities where we live and work during Discover Your Impact Day, Discovery and its global employees remain committed 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.
