Business: Global Business Strategy Our Business

Global Business and Environmental Sustainability

As a global security company, we seek to support our customer priorities and strategic objectives. In fulfilling that role, we act to conserve environmental resources. Further, we regularly interact with many scientists and policymakers to support the generation of key decision-making data.

For more than 25 years, Northrop Grumman satellites, airborne platforms, sensor technologies and modeling systems have provided, among other uses, climate monitoring and measurement data from air and space to land and sea. Our technology supports critical applications and provides data for understanding climate science. In turn, we help inform policymakers about climate-related environmental risks and impacts to adaptation and resiliency plans.
