overview
2015 marked 20 years of excellence in ethical governance at Lockheed Martin.

Business ethics represents a fundamental element of our core strategy, influencing how we can strengthen our foundation and evolve our culture.

Our latest assessment of sustainability issues identified four prioritized factors for which we set goals: bribery and corruption controls, ethical governance and leadership, responsible sales, and supplier conduct.

We also identified three factors on the horizon: human and labor rights, supplier diversity, and conflict minerals.
