2025 Sustainability Management Plan Overview

Our corporate Sustainability policy establishes a standard approach to integrating sustainability practices across Lockheed Martin. Our Sustainability Management Plan (SMP) defines our goals and drives our sustainability progress.

To create the SMP, we first define our core sustainability issues through an extensive process described on our Core Issues Assessment Process webpage. Our SMP goals can be retired and/or updated, if necessary, based on our progress and the changing needs of our business. We also continually monitor environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities to stay informed of shifting and emerging trends and expectations.

In 2020, we developed our 2025 SMP to guide our sustainability efforts over the following five years and, for some efforts, longer. Our 2025 SMP comprises four sustainability priorities that contain individual core issues and goals.

Reporting Our Progress

Each year we report on efforts to champion the core issues identified in our SMP and progress toward Lockheed Martin’s sustainability goals in our Annual Sustainability Performance Report.
