Corporate Social Responsibility
Every day, FLIR is making a difference in the world. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is key to our culture, and the company is committed to giving back to those who put our technological solutions to ever-expanding beneficial use.
FLIR HERO represents the company’s CSR strategy and is built upon a foundation of community involvement in three areas: Planet, Purpose, and Potential.
FLIR technology aids environmental stewards and organizations across the globe, collaborating with scientific researchers and field experts to better understand and improve the health of the planet. Our technology helps visualize the impact of greenhouse gases, volcanoes and a host of other environmental phenomena. Thermal imaging technology is also used to study a variety of animals, including bats, birds, whales, bears, and mountain lions to help preserve these species.
As part of our mission, FLIR is proud to collaborate with World Wildlife Fund, donating thermal cameras to WWF to help with their effort to protect endangered wildlife. Rangers use the technology to combat poaching in Africa and it has made a major impact.

FLIR supports charitable activities of many of our most important customers, including first responders and veterans. These courageous people put themselves in harm’s way each and every day, and we believe it’s our responsibility to do what we can to give back.
For almost four decades, FLIR has provided militaries around the world with technology and solutions to help them accomplish their mission safely and effectively. Today, FLIR employs hundreds of veterans in a range of job roles, including engineering, sales, business development, support, and executive staff. Our goal is to significantly increase the number of veteran employees at FLIR and become a top employer for veterans in the coming years.
Thermal Training Program for Veterans
TradeForce provides free thermography training to U.S. veterans through its Infrared Training Center (ITC). The need for more qualified thermal imaging experts, or thermographers, across industries continues to grow in areas such as electrical, building inspection, moisture remediation, HVAC, and gas inspection. Having people within a company who have used thermal technology in the battlefield brings unique and invaluable experience to the workplace.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s explorers, discoverers and innovators. At FLIR, we support the need to feed the curiosity and interest of children in science, technology and engineering to fuel future innovations. Our goal is to inspire teachers and youth to explore the unseen world of thermal imaging and make science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects more interesting in the classroom.
FLIR is passionate in our efforts to support teachers and students by incorporating more thermal technology into classrooms and providing quality lesson plans and instructional tutorials for educational guidance and inspiration.
