Community Outreach

Vaisala believes in a world where environmental observations improve daily life. As the global leader in environmental measurement and an active member of society, Vaisala has a community outreach program to support education and disaster relief.

Vaisala may provide charitable donations of products, funding or services to non-profit organizations through its Community Outreach Program. The Program’s overall objective is to support organizations and projects that advance environmental awareness and science education. All our outreach activities should be in line with Vaisala’s values and resonate well with environmental issues such as climate, weather, environmental measurement and environmental sciences.
