strategic sustainability

Lockheed Martin’s sustainability strategy involves connecting stakeholder preferences with economic, social and environmental impacts of our business model to make sound decisions. It reflects how we prioritize and organize our Science of Citizenship actions and move toward our long-term mission.

In late 2015, the Corporate Sustainability Office (CSO) conducted reassessing priority topics based on the company’s evolving business portfolio and highly dynamic environment. Our discussions with people across organizations and geographies revealed important insights that led us to shift the way we characterize and prioritize sustainability issues impacting our business.

The resulting Sustainability Management Plan includes specific goals and performance measures we monitor and voluntarily disclose. The 2015 process included the steps below.

Our sustainability factors have two tiers of priorities: Tier 1 performance factors where we seek to accelerate progress by setting targets for 2017 and 2020; and Tier 2 factors that we will advance through continued management an disclosure, without setting new SMP goals.
