Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control
Lockheed Martin created the Environmental Health and Safety Perfomance Management Team (EHS PMT) in April 2001 to identify waste minimization and pollution prevention opportunities, process improvements and cost savings. The ESH PMT meets weekly to discuss progress toward yearly goals, such as to implement source reduction activities, conduct ESH awareness campaigns, implement energy productivity items, reduce chemical waste volume from the previous year, increase the percentage of waste that's recycled, and achieve cost savings or avoidances of $1 million through process improvements.
The cross functional team is composed of fifteen members from 7 departments. Since its inception in April 2001 the EHS PMT has implemented over 85 process improvement projects.
