Rocket Lab’s Impact Report highlights our efforts on sustainability, community outreach and philanthropy, and customer missions that support our goal of opening access to space to improve life on Earth.


“We go to space to improve life on Earth… For [the Rocket Lab] team achieving this mission is about relentlessly tackling the barriers to space innovation, developing technology and solutions that enable humanity to address our biggest challenges and unlock the full potential of space.”

We take our responsibility to act as a force for good in the world seriously, and with that comes our commitment to understanding and mitigating our impact on the environment – both here on Earth and in space.

We are committed to:

  • Complying with all legal environmental obligations of the jurisdictions in which we operate.
  • Seeking to avoid, remedy, and mitigate adverse effects.
  • Promoting the continual improvement of environmental performance and environmental awareness.
  • Incorporating environmental risk reduction and sustainable practices through mission planning and execution.


Our approach to how we grow our team and how we grow our business is fuelled by the knowledge that innovation is unlocked by diverse ideas and talent and that our success has come from doing things differently.

We are committed to:

  • Attracting and engaging a global team that reflects the diversity of the missions we support and the communities where we live and work.
  • Developing and sustaining a workplace where all of our team members have equal opportunities to succeed and have their voices heard.
  • Supporting our local communities through volunteering, sponsorships, and collaboration.
  • Looking to form partnerships with and encourage participation by mana whenua (indigenous people) to protect Māori knowledge, interests, values, and other taonga (treasured possessions) at our New Zealand operations


We believe responsible and ethical business practices are critical to a winning culture. Our reputation for honesty and integrity is among our most important assets, and our global team is bound by policies and procedures which uphold our high standards of ethical compliance and ensure the safety of our information and our people.

We are committed to:

  • Our requirements at the Board level for diversity and inclusion to be considered as a factor in new appointments.
  • Equal pay for equal work with competitive and balanced salaries across our team.
  • Honest and ethical conduct with our customers, suppliers, and contractors.
  • Where possible, conducting business with suppliers and contractors who share our commitment to establish environmentally responsible business practices and proactively improve our environmental performance.
