Corporate Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility

In communities around the world, we are Defining Possible.

At Northrop Grumman, we take pride in conducting business with a broad perspective, taking into account customers, employees, shareholders, the environment and communities in which we operate.

As we continue to grow, we remain committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards, embracing diversity and becoming an ideal corporate citizen. We do so by implementing our core values: taking responsibility for the quality we put forth, delivering customer satisfaction, demonstrating leadership, acting with integrity, valuing our people, and treating our suppliers as essential team members.
