Lockheed Martin named to the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

Lockheed Martin has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for 2015 for a second consecutive year, the company announced today.

The 2015 Index represents the top 10 percent of the largest 2,500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on long-term environmental, social and economic criteria. The index, started in 1999, evaluates corporations by looking at climate strategy, operational eco-efficiency, human capital development, risk and crisis management, stakeholder engagement and corporate governance, according to a press release.

“As an aerospace and defense company, this achievement reflects the value of continuing sustainable product and process pursuits across our portfolio for socially and environmentally responsible long-term growth,” said Leo S. Mackay, Jr., vice president of ethics and sustainability for Lockheed Martin in a press release.
