The Performance Track is a three-year program in which each participating facility sets four goals in order to improve environmental performance.
Of the 225 facilities (100 companies) named to the program, five were Lockheed Martin facilities. Two of these five are located in New York: Lockheed Martin Systems Integration - Owego and Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems in Syracuse.
