Commitment to Action

Urban Sustainability Triage and Realization

Commitment by

Lockheed Martin Corporation

In 2010, the Lockheed Martin Corporation committed to develop, test, and mature sustainable environmental practices and technologies to increase urban sustainability, reduce carbon emissions, and prepare for future climate change effects through a public-private agreement with the city of Burlington, Vermont. These efforts will establish and verify cost-effective techniques to prioritize both energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, and they will be the basis of a model approach that can be applied to enhance the sustainability of other municipalities, both developed and developing.
As of April 2011, Lockheed Martin signed a Letter of Cooperation with the City of Burlington, Vermont, in December 2010, to enhance the sustainability of the City of Burlington by applying and testing new sustainable environmental practices and technologies in an urban environment. They also organized a research symposium at the University of Vermont that will include researchers from the University of Maryland and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
