The Essence of Our Business

Lockheed Martin’s business success depends on our commitment to integrity. We do more than just comply with laws and regulations. We aim to do what is right every day.

It begins with our Corporate Vision: Be the global leader in supporting our customers to strengthen global security, deliver citizen services and advance scientific discovery.

We will accomplish our vision by conducting business according to our values:

Do What's Right

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct in all that we do. We believe that honesty and integrity engender trust, which is the cornerstone of our business. We abide by the laws of the United States and other countries in which we do business. We strive to be good citizens and we take responsibility for our actions.

Respect Others
We recognize that our success as an enterprise depends on the talent, skills and expertise of our people and our ability to function as a tightly integrated team. We appreciate our diversity and believe that respect - for our colleagues, customers, partners, and all those with whom we interact - is an essential element of all positive and productive business relationships.

Perform With Excellence
We understand the importance of our missions and the trust our customers place in us. With this in mind, we strive to excel in every aspect of our business and approach every challenge with a determination to succeed.
