In addition, as part of our corporate responsibility efforts, we are aligning our business with sustainability practices, embracing green initiatives and translating our values into measurable actions. We aim to become a more sustainable business by measuring impact; encouraging conservation at home, in the workplace and in the community; and supporting environmentally friendly businesses and initiatives.

Our efforts extend out into the community with the Northrop Grumman Foundation ECO Classroom program, designed to equip teachers so they can inspire students to pursue science and technical careers and become our next generation of environmental stewards and innovators. Additionally, the company has established a pilot program for greeNG Employee Resource Groups. These groups allow employees to actively contribute to the implementation of greeNG—a broad enterprise initiative that renews the company’s commitment to enhancing the environment.
