Lockheed Martin was recognized as the top U.S. aerospace and defense leader for economic, environmental and social sustainability in the latest RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Yearbook, presented on Jan. 22 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“We’re proud to be honored as a global leader in sustainability as we continue to develop innovative products and processes in a way that protects the environment, strengthens communities and propels responsible growth,” Ethics and Sustainability Vice President Leo Mackay said.

This is the second consecutive year Lockheed Martin has been listed in the RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Yearbook which assesses sustainable practices for more than 2,000 of the world’s largest companies across 59 industries and 42 countries. The Corporation received Silver Class distinction in the 2016 yearbook, rising from Bronze Class in 2015.

The 2016 RobecoSAM Yearbook recognizes companies ranked in the best 15% of their industry sector in sustainability. Read more here.

“We see competition for inclusion in the RobecoSAM Sustainability Yearbook steadily growing every year, so I congratulate all the companies that made it into the 2016 edition,” said Michael Baldinger, CEO of RobecoSAM. “What was once a very niche concept is now becoming more mainstream.”

Sustainability at Lockheed Martin is about making profitable business decisions that factor in impacts on people and the planet. We focus our efforts on six high-impact sustainability priorities: governance, product performance, talent competitiveness, supplier sustainability, resource efficiency and information security.
