The Essence of Our Business
Lockheed Martin’s business success depends on our commitment to integrity. We do more than just comply with laws and regulations. We aim to do what is right every day.
It begins with our Corporate Vision: Be the global leader in supporting our customers to strengthen global security, deliver citizen services and advance scientific discovery.
We will accomplish our vision by conducting business according to our values:
Do What's Right
We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct in all that we do. We believe that honesty and integrity engender trust, which is the cornerstone of our business. We abide by the laws of the United States and other countries in which we do business. We strive to be good citizens and we take responsibility for our actions.
We recognize that our success as an enterprise depends on the talent, skills and expertise of our people and our ability to function as a tightly integrated team. We appreciate our diversity and believe that respect - for our colleagues, customers, partners, and all those with whom we interact - is an essential element of all positive and productive business relationships.
Perform With Excellence
We understand the importance of our missions and the trust our customers place in us. With this in mind, we strive to excel in every aspect of our business and approach every challenge with a determination to succeed.
Suppliers are an integral part of our Mission Success and we value their support. Our partnership is a critical factor to our business and customers. We expect all Lockheed Martin employees to set the standard for ethical business conduct, and, in turn, we build relationships with suppliers who commit to integrity and share our values. We want our suppliers to understand, foster, and mirror the ethical conduct we expect from our employees in all business challenges and transactions.
The Supplier Code of Conduct expresses the expectations we hold for our suppliers, and mirrors the standards we set for our own employees, board of directors and other business associates through the Lockheed Martin Code of Ethics and Business Conduct. Employees fulfilled 100% of their training commitments with over 500,000 Business Conduct and Compliance training courses completed in 2013.
As may be required by new Federal Acquisition Regulation, we also strongly encourage our supply chain to have proactive and meaningful ethics programs established within their organizations. In addition, we are committed not only to having a sound and robust Ethics & Business Conduct program within our organization, but committed to helping ensure that one exists throughout our supply chain as well.
Special Areas of Commitment
Lockheed Martin Corporation – a signatory of the Defense Industry Initiative for Ethical Business Conduct (DII) and a charter member of the International Forum on Business Ethical Conduct (IFBEC) – is committed to the principles of these organizations that include combating corruption and enhancing a culture of integrity within industry.

Lockheed Martin supports the Dodd-Frank Act’s objective of preventing armed groups in the Covered Countries from benefitting from the sourcing of Conflict Minerals from that region. We are committed to responsible sourcing of materials for our products, including the sourcing of Conflict Minerals, and we expect that our suppliers are likewise committed to responsible sourcing.
