Lockheed Martin Electronics and Missiles - Orlando, FL
Lockheed Martin Electronics and Missiles 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.
