Our Sustainability Approach

Our business is Defining Possible for people and the planet.

Bettering Our World

Our sustainability ethos defines who we are at Northrop Grumman and how we impact the world around us. From singular engineers feeling empowered to bring the power of their whole selves to a project, to technical teams utilizing artificial intelligence ethically, to facilities managers reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from our operations, doing the right thing is grounded in everything we do. When we identify and manage our sustainability impacts, we define what is possible across our company in order to make a safer and more inclusive world a reality.

Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability is a matter of national security. Climate change is influencing natural disasters, population displacements, and conflicts over essential resources like food and water, which all contribute to destabilization. We’re dedicated to meeting the environmental challenges with solutions and technology as a global steward.
