Information : Environmental Practices
Lockheed Martin Electronics and Missiles (E&M) designed the Pollution Prevention and Environmental Practices program to reduce pollution control costs and to comply with increasing pollution regulations. Lockheed Martin’s Pollution Prevention and Environmental Practices constitute a strong environmental effort. The corporate philosophy of 100% compliance 100% of the time, and commitment of top management and employees have a significant impact on pollution prevention and control. As a part of the pollution prevention strategy, Lockheed implemented corporate-mandated programs, incorporated customer-specified programs, adapted existing cultural practices to requirements, re-engineered chemical inventory management, and created employee awareness. Lockheed also successfully participated in the following EPA voluntary programs:
Green light relamping over a million square feet which yielded cost savings of over $25K per year. Energy conservation projects such as computer control of air conditioning and improved chiller cleaning and maintenance.
33/50 toxics reduction
Lockheed Martin has recently completed the design of the Chemical Inventory Management Program with procedures that require environmental, safety, and health approval and tracking numbers prior to order; re-engineer order/receiving and distribution systems; interface existing business software to an environmental information database; and create a state-of-the-art, cradle-to-grave tracking system.
