A Future of Possibility
Lockheed Martin has long been driven by the concept of sustainability – well before it emerged as a paradigm of corporate citizenship. The founders of our legacy companies were aviators who studied complex questions of fuel and flight sustainability to ultimately answer not only whether we can fly farther and faster, but also how we will arrive safely at our destination. Since the dawn of space-age Earth observation more than 60 years ago, our weather satellites have awakened scientists and meteorologists to more vivid imagery of cloud cover, ozone, radiation and temperature profiles.
Over generations we’ve unlocked ingenuity to improve our environmental, safety and health performance. Today we work with peers, non-governmental organizations and others to make responsible business decisions that generate value for customers, shareholders and in locations where we operate.
Our environmental safety and health sustainability strategy strengthens the Corporation by:
- Empowering our employees to commit to safe practices and to achieving optimum health.
- Working from within to use resources wisely in order to preserve our planet and ensure our operations support the social and physical environments in local communities.
- Unleashing our excellence to develop innovative and safe products that respect the environment.
To us, it translates to healthier employees, less carbon emissions, waste generation and water use, a stronger supply chain, and higher quality and valued customer solutions.
A better future—for our company and all those we serve—depends on it.
