Lockheed Martin earns spot on CDP’s Climate A List
“In 2015 alone, we have avoided an estimated $26 million in energy costs by investing in energy efficiency,” Lockheed Martin Vice President of Energy, Environment, Safety and Health Carol Cala said. “And we will continue to create a sustainable future through investments in clean energy and energy efficiency at every level of our operations.”
The company has worked to address the impacts of climate change and incorporate ethical and strategic thinking in its business model for almost 15 years.
Moving forward, Lockheed Martin is considering initiatives like a 17-year power purchase agreement with Duke Energy that would see the company provide 30 megawatts of solar power for the national grid, or opening a bioenergy facility in New York that would convert waste into clean energy.
“Sustainability is more than a label: it’s Lockheed Martin’s business model for innovation and growth,” Leo Mackay, senior vice president of Internal Audit, Ethics and Sustainability for Lockheed Martin, said. “This recognition from CDP reinforces our accomplishments in driving sustainability in our core practices and cutting-edge technologies.”
