NNS Renews Participation in Virginia Environmental Excellence Program
Published March 9, 2021
Newport News Shipbuilding recently renewed participation in the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP), which encourages and assists facilities and organizations that have strong environmental records to go above and beyond legal requirements. NNS is an Extraordinary Environmental Enterprise (E4) participant, which is VEEP’s highest level.
Extraordinary Environmental Enterprise facilities have a fully implemented environmental management system that has been verified by an independent third party and are committed to measures for continuous and sustainable environmental progress and community involvement.
Participation in the program provides a number of benefits for NNS, including public recognition, permit fee discounts, and a single point of contact within the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
