Environmental Stewardship

To achieve and maintain global, sustainable business growth, Lockheed Martin works from the inside out. We conserve to preserve.

We use a life cycle analysis approach to assess value chain impacts. We seek alternatives to non-renewable raw materials, while minimizing adverse environmental consequences of our operations. But, it goes beyond monitoring the types and quantities of materials and resources we use. We also strive to understand how those materials are sourced and the path they follow on their journey into our facilities, products and services, as well as product use and end of life considerations.

We have achieved our goal of 25% absolute reduction in landfill waste, water and energy use from 2007 to 2012, a year ahead of plan. Our Blueprint for Tomorrow shows how we are making that happen through LEED certified facilities, safety performance awards and green power purchases.

In 2012, we launched new environmental sustainability goals, which commit us to achieve the following reductions from 2010 levels by 2020. We will begin reporting against these targets in 2013.

We will reduce:

  • carbon emissions by 35%
  • facility energy use by 20%
  • waste to landfills by 35%
  • water use by 10%

Our Go Green 2020 targets will help shape our future sustainability strategies, programs and projects for our business operations. These goals closely mirror the environmental footprint–reduction targets of our largest customer, the U.S. Department of Defense. U.S. Executive Order 13514 requires all Federal agencies to establish environmental-reduction targets and develop strategies and initiatives to meet those targets. This approach underlines our dedication to helping customers meet their environmental sustainability challenges and makes good business sense.

Lockheed Martin employees have found ways to embrace our Go Green program. Learn More
