Sustainability: Pollution Prevention

At NASSCO, we believe that protecting our environment is important to the long-term health of our employees, our community neighbors and the success of our business. We voluntarily incorporate principles of pollution prevention into our everyday operations, and in all areas of the shipyard, in order to meet these goals. Our corporate philosophy of “beyond compliance” applies to pollution prevention, as it does to all of our environmental initiatives, and has secured NASSCO’s position as a global leader in environmentally responsible shipbuilding practices.

General Dynamics NASSCO provides all employees with pollution prevention training. “Environmental Bulletins” are distributed regularly to all employees, and cover topics such as pollution prevention at home, on the roadways, and in the shipyard. We also provide pollution prevention training in accordance with our Environmental Management System to our customers, suppliers and subcontractors that work with us at the shipyard.

Annual environmental performance reviews are provided for suppliers and subcontractors in order to evaluate our mutual success toward achieving environmental goals.
