Employees from our Missiles and Fire Control business launched the Green Star Affinity Group on Earth Day, April 22, 2008. Green Star educates employees to take ownership of their environmental impact and hosts frequent discussions on helpful topics such as green tips for the home, how to conduct a home energy audit and commuter solutions. Since then, Green Star branches have popped up at various Lockheed Martin locations, helping to shape the future of the business, our employees and our communities.
