Reporting
This comprehensive sustainability report follows our inaugural report issued in April 2012 and encompasses data and activities for the calendar year 2012. The report and its data are global, unless otherwise noted, covering Lockheed Martin and the owned, leased and managed operations of our five business areas: Aeronautics, Information Systems & Global Solutions, Missiles and Fire Control, Mission Systems and Training and Space Systems. We have expanded the scope and depth of information reported compared with 2011 to reflect valuable stakeholder feedback and sharper focus on our sustainability performance.

Through the lens of our threefold commitment to Protect the Environment, Strengthen Communities and Propel Responsible Growth, we highlight our performance objectives, results, challenges and business relevancy. Wherever possible, we provide relevant environmental, social and governance data over five years for our operations and supply chain. To enhance transparency, for the first time our report includes an index that follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework.

The data presented in our Performance Indicators section undergo an Internal Audit review to verify data-collection and authentication processes. The report also reflects insights from sustainability experts on specific issues and reporting practices.

The data presented about our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are subject to internal and external reviews to provide a limited level of assurance for emissions reported to CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project. The external review determined that our reported GHG emissions are a fair representation for the stated period and boundaries. Our GHG information includes emissions data provided by our air and car rental preferred suppliers for business travel.
