Excellence Award for General Dynamics NASSCO
General Dynamics NASSCO, a business unit of General Dynamics, was recognized for its environmental conservation and leadership efforts to continuously implement energy-efficient solutions at its San Diego shipyard.
This week the company received an Award of Environmental Excellence from the Industrial Environmental Association at its 2014 conference in San Diego.
In March 2014, NASSCO completed the remediation of sediment in its shipyard, which is the largest clean-up in the history of the San Diego bay, and is one of the largest sediment cleanups anywhere in the United States.
“NASSCO’s leadership made possible the largest shipyard sediment clean-up in California. They successfully assembled a team of stakeholders including other shipyards, environmental organizations, regulators and government organizations that reached consensus on a science based clean-up plan which is currently being executed,” said Jack Monger, executive director of the Industrial Environmental Association, San Diego chapter.
In April 2014, General Dynamics NASSCO received a sustainable business award from the Industrial Environmental Association for its use of the association’s five “Rs:” Refuse, Reuse, Recycle, Reduce and Recover.
