General Dynamics is committed to reducing our global environmental impact.
Each of our businesses has professionally-run Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) programs to ensure our facilities operate safely and comply with company programs and practices to prevent any environmental impacts. Each business develops annual goals to drive continuous improvement in EHS performance. We have an active Environmental, Health & Safety committee which includes experts from each General Dynamics business unit. This group works together to promote best practices and shared strategies throughout the company and serves as a resource in promoting a safety- and environmentally aware culture.
As a company, we are committed to continuous improvement which includes creating efficiencies and building systems that reduce our emissions output. The nature of our business, with multi-year, large-scale manufacturing contracts, and our organizational structure make it challenging to set company-wide global emissions reduction goals. As such, each business unit determines its energy efficiency programs to meet its energy objectives and remain aligned with energy priorities of our customers. Across the business, we are collecting high-quality data, using a third-party firm.
