Lockheed Martin Reduces Annual Water Consumption by 11 Percent

water1Lockheed 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.

One thought on “Lockheed Martin Reduces Annual Water Consumption by 11 Percent

  1. Excellent move by Lockheed Martin in taking a responsible approach to their water use and management. We expect that this will soon become a mandate especially in the Western parts of the US experiencing drought and throughout the EU as a normal course of business.

    It is only a matter of time before the data center industry along with those in manufacturing develop a unified approach to measuring and reporting their WUE – Water Useage Effectiveness.

    A measure of productivity per unit of water.

    Emerson Network Power is helping the Green Grid and others in developing productivity based metrics. We believe WUE is one of these metrics that must be defined in 2009.
