Christina Kull Martens, a manufacturing integration manager at Northrop Grumman, has won an award for helping the aerospace systems sector reduce greenhouse gas emissions in manufacturing projects.
The company’s Chair’s Green Leadership Award intends to recognize employees for helping to sustain the environment in their communities, Northrop said Tuesday.
Martens has served as an environmental engineer at the company since 2007 and has built employee sustainability teams honored by the South Bay Business Environmental Coalition and the West Basin Water District, Northrop said.
Bruce Gains, a Northrop fleet manager, nominated Martens for the award and said she has helped the company develop new hybrid and clean diesel vehicles.
“This award reflects her enthusiasm for corporate and community environmental sustainability,” Gains said.
The company said she has participated in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design programs and others aimed to reduce waste, conserve energy, comply with air quality regulations and engage employees with environmental initiatives.
Martens serves on the boards for the South Bay Business Environmental Coalition and the California Conservation Corps Greening.
