Environmental Remediation

Northrop Grumman - Environmental Remediation 

Program Overview

The focus of Environmental Remediation is to bring projects to closure in an efficient and effective manner, with the lowest risk to the environment. Given this emphasis, the function has employed various tools, processes and methodologies to increase efficiencies, limit risks and reduce redundancies and is managed by well qualified, highly experienced environmental professionals.

Goals

Effectively address environmentally-impacted properties in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Seek cost-effective alternatives to traditional resource-intensive remediation practices, which reduce environmental disturbance and energy use, and promote ecosystem recovery. Work cooperatively with government agencies, conservation groups, citizen groups, and other stakeholders to address environmental impacts at remediation sites, while protecting human health.

Performance

In 2016, Environmental Remediation was involved in 170 remediation projects with an annual budget of $52 million. From 2006 to 2016, restoration was successfully completed at 80 sites and each project was removed from the company’s portfolio of impacted properties. During the same decade $44 million in life-cycle cost reductions was accomplished by using innovative engineering approaches and continuous improvement processes through self-inspections and independent third party reviews.
