Lockheed Martin Reduces Annual Water Consumption by 11 Percent
Lockheed Martin has reduced its total water consumption by 11 percent in 2008. The company saved approximately 275-million gallons of water through the use of facility and cooling system efficiency projects, detecting and repairing leaks, and installing landscape irrigation controls.
Water conservation is part of the Bethesda, Maryland-based company’s environmental program that has established a 25-percent reduction goal for carbon emissions, waste and water use by 2012. The company has earned recognition for its environmental performance in 2008, ranging from energy efficiency to waste reduction and recycling programs, with facilities across the United States and the United Kingdom.
Other major initiatives include investments in renewable energy technologies, the purchase of 147,000 renewable energy certificates, and delivering energy-efficient and conservation services to its customers.
Lockheed Martin continues to deliver energy-efficient solutions to the market. Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services, for example, was awarded a role on the Department of Energy’s indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity vehicle to help reduce energy costs across the government.
