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. Key Issues
Around the world, complex issues are changing the way we think about sustainable growth and the contributing role of individuals, businesses and communities. Environmental, economic and social concerns present increasing challenges, as well as opportunities, for companies in the global marketplace.
Natural resources, energy, land development, climate change, social issues and economic fluctuations are often closely interconnected. At Lockheed Martin, we consider these factors synergistically when developing and refining our corporate sustainability strategy.
We recently announced we achieved a set of aggressive five-year global environmental goals a year ahead of schedule. We met or exceeded our goals of reducing water use, waste-to-landfill and carbon emissions by 25 percent each since 2007 levels.
In the area of employee safety, we have reduced recordable workplace injuries by 46% from 2003 to 2011. As we strive for continuous improvement, we place further emphasis on promoting a culture of personal responsibility, management accountability and safety in order to improve our future performance.
We are committed to facing these complex challenges head on, improving both our business performance and contributing to a more sustainable future for our employees, communities and society.
