As the world’s leading provider of Global Security Solutions, Lockheed Martin maintains the highest standards for ethical business practices and performance in every aspect of its business conduct.

Lockheed Martin builds sustainable supplier capacity by partnering with our supply chain to reduce adverse environmental impacts, to promote human rights, health, safety and ethical behavior, and to enable responsible supplier growth and raise standards. We define Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) as “management of our supply base to drive affordability and innovation through social responsibility and environmental stewardship.” The objective of SSCM is to ensure alignment of our supply base’s social, ethical, environmental, safety and health responsibilities with Lockheed Martin’s sustainability commitments.

Our focus on environmental sustainability continues to improve energy efficiency, reduce natural resource usage, and reduce waste. Our focus on social sustainability continues to promote ethics, safety, and human rights. Our focus on governance sustainability continues to progress disclosure, transparency and accountability of management systems, processes and practices. For all aspects, our suppliers represent a key partner in achieving success in sustainability.

We invite you to learn more about our core areas of SSCM.      


Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)


The European Community Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force on June 1, 2007, and was enabled in 2008 with the establishment of the European Chemicals Agency in Helsinki, Finland. The regulation aims to better protect human health and the environment by ensuring the risks associated with chemicals are measured and understood. REACH calls for registration of chemicals above specific thresholds that are imported and/or manufactured within the European Economic Area (EEA), chemical disclosure requirements for articles that are imported and/or manufactured within the EEA, and the complete restriction of some chemicals from the EEA altogether.
