Comcast Corporation

Following last year’s successful combination of Comcast and NBCUniversal into one company, Comcast is now in the vanguard of technological and media innovation. We are focused more than ever on developing new, exciting opportunities to create and deliver the entertainment and information that our national and global consumers want.

Our combined company’s unique platform for entertainment, information, and communications also drives us to create additional value in the neighborhoods we serve. We are exploring new ways to enhance our investments in the communities where we do business, while minimizing our impact on the environment.

Comcast has long believed in doing business in a socially responsible manner, and now we are poised to do so on an even greater scale. This year’s CSR report provides a detailed picture of our sustainability initiatives.

In 2011, Comcast and NBCUniversal contributed more than $435 million in cash and in-kind services to charitable organizations throughout the country, including United Way, Boys & Girls Clubs, and City Year. To help close the digital divide, we launched our Internet Essentials program, which provides affordable broadband access to low-income families. We highlighted our commitment to acting environmentally responsible through a focused purchasing program that makes us the owner of the nation’s tenth-largest hybrid vehicle fleet, and by offering more than 300 hours of programming on environmental topics as part of our Green is Universal initiative. In addition, our more than 50 on-air, online, and mobile platforms mobilized their audiences to actively engage in critical social discussions on topics ranging from improving education to protecting the environment to celebrating diversity.

I am excited about the progress we are making, though we also recognize the many opportunities we have to do more. These challenges motivate us to find additional ways to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to our core values as a socially responsible company.

We aspire every day to earn the respect and trust of our stakeholders — customers, employees, shareholders, and the people in the communities we serve — and view them as partners in a collaborative effort to improve our corporate responsibility programs. Our employees, who live, work, and raise their families in the same communities as our customers, play an especially integral role in helping us move forward and make a difference every day.

Thanks for your interest in Comcast. I look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.
