Ouster Introduces Sustainability Program to Drive Increased Safety, Efficiency and Equity Across its Industries, Business Operations, and Communities

01 March 2022

Ouster, Inc. (NYSE: OUST) (“Ouster” or “the Company”), a leading provider of high-resolution digital lidar sensors for the automotive, industrial, smart infrastructure, and robotics industries, today formalized its commitment to building a safer and more sustainable future with the introduction of an integrated and ambitious Sustainability Program.

Ouster’s Sustainability Program is predicated on the founding principle of its business: to innovate and deliver technologies that lead to safer vehicles, transportation networks, workplaces, and infrastructure for more sustainable communities. The Company intends to execute on its long-term strategic priorities alongside its Sustainability Program to have a positive impact on its communities and the planet.

Ouster established an internal Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Advisory Committee to continue building out, improving, tracking, and reporting on its Sustainability Program across three core pillars: (i) Environmental and Operational Excellence, (ii) Human Capital and Corporate Citizenship, and (iii) Product Impact. Ouster aims to align its best practices and future reporting to the shared blueprint outlined within the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

“Ouster is poised to have a large-scale impact on society through the multitude of applications and industries we serve with digital lidar, from safer roads and vehicles to a more sustainable supply chain,” said Ouster CEO Angus Pacala. “We believe we can accelerate value creation by answering society’s increasing demand for safer and more sustainable solutions. This effort is expected to make us a stronger partner for customers, a preferred place for our employees to work, and a more attractive investment. Ultimately, this initiative will benefit our company, our stakeholders, and communities around the world.”
