Message from Mike Petters
Huntington Ingalls Industries’ motto of “Hard Stuff Done Right” speaks to the difficult work we do, but even more importantly, it conveys our commitment to always do the right thing. Doing the right thing includes being a responsible corporation focused on operating in a manner that is consistent with our values and considers all of our stakeholders.
We are committed to the safety, health, welfare and development of our employees while delivering products of exceptional quality to our customers within cost and schedule requirements. We are also committed to maintaining and strengthening a culture that provides a mutually beneficial relationship with our suppliers and the continuous improvement and transformation of our communities while meeting the expectations of our shareholders.
Thank you for taking time to review our first Corporate Sustainability Report. Many of the efforts noted herein have been underway for years, but this report is our first holistic presentation of these activities. We view this as an initial step in a longer journey towards providing greater transparency around our sustainability efforts that follow the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework. Your interest in HII is greatly appreciated and we welcome your continued engagement and feedback.
