Leadership Perspective

Marillyn Hewson, CEO and President, welcomes employees to the inaugural Military/Veterans Leadership Forum. This new diversity and inclusion employee forum was one of three added in 2012, expanding our network to include: African American Leadership Forum; Council of Asian American Leaders; Hispanic Leadership Council; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Leadership Forum; People with Disabilities Leadership Forum and Women’s Leadership Forum. Each forum provides opportunities for professional development, mentoring and networking.

Tomorrow Matters

Our 100th anniversary in 2012 reminded us of why sustainability is so important for our business. Companies that endure do so because they make a contribution that endures. They create long-term value for all of their stakeholders: their customers, their stockholders, their employees, their communities and their suppliers. For those groups, value today is important, and value tomorrow is priceless. Tomorrow matters. And that’s why we’re focused on creating enduring value through sustainability.

When it comes to sustainability, our goal is to foster innovation, integrity and security in ways that protect the environment, strengthen communities and propel responsible economic growth. These efforts drive innovation, reduce costs, boost efficiencies, all while maintaining our deep commitment to integrity.

This, our second annual sustainability report, illustrates why 2012 was a milestone year for the way we manage environmental, social and governance performance. We established an Office of Corporate Sustainability to integrate business decisions affecting all of our stakeholders. We formed a council of executive leaders to govern and guide our sustainability policies and goals. And we launched our Go Green 2020 initiative, a new set of ambitious environmental goals aiming beyond regulatory requirements.

When done right, sustainability guards our core values—do what’s right, respect others and perform with excellence—and reinforces our culture of integrity. We’re proud of our progress thus far, and we recognize that tomorrow’s social, economic and environmental challenges will require us to do even better. Our commitment is to create sustainable value for all of our stakeholders—today and tomorrow—to ensure we’re still thriving on our 200th anniversary.

This report tells the story of our accomplishments, challenges and expectations. I invite you to read more about how the men and women of Lockheed Martin live their commitments to the environment, their communities and responsible growth.
