Each year the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) honor businesses with an exemplary commitment and dedication to leadership in energy efficiency.
For a second consecutive year, Lockheed Martin is being recognized as a 2020 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year.
"Our commitment to energy efficiency aligns with our core values to do what’s right, respect others and perform with excellence,” said Lockheed Martin Vice President for Environment, Safety and Health Carol B. Cala. “We lead by example in helping our customers achieve sustainability goals and since 2010, we have reduced energy use by 22 percent, carbon emissions by 36 percent and water use by 22 percent. As we create solutions for sustainable energy consumption and production within our facilities, I look forward to building on those efforts through our Go Green Program.”
The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award recognizes ENERGY STAR partner businesses and organizations in good standing that demonstrate superior leadership, innovation and commitment to environmental protection through energy efficiency and the ENERGY STAR program.
“I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
Lockheed Martin’s achievements in 2019 included saving enough energy to offset one year’s worth of employee commutes and business travel. Here are a few more ways Lockheed Martin met its commitment to energy efficiency in 2019:
The Energy Star Challenge is a national call to action to reduce energy intensity by 10% within five years. Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky operations in Troy, Alabama, did it in just one year, reducing energy intensity by 23%! The facility is saving enough energy to power 162 homes or charge more than 97,000,000 smart phones each year.
Lockheed Martin is the first aerospace Partner since 2012 to achieve the Challenge.
The dedicated facility team at Denver Data Center delivered its eighth ENERGY STAR certification, with performance that puts it in the top 25% of data centers around the country. This year it scored 97 out of 100! Which means it is consistently energy efficient, performing better than 97% of similar data centers around the country.
At the 2019 ENERGY STAR Industrial Partner meeting, Lockheed Martin’s Moorestown, New Jersey, site was awarded a Top Project award for an energy efficiency project that replaced steam heating with more efficient direct hot water heating. The resulting energy savings are equivalent to removing 198 vehicles from the road or the carbon removed from the atmosphere by 1,097 acres of U.S. forests.
