Corporate Responsibility Report: http://www.raytheon.com/responsibility/future/index.html.
As an enterprise, we exceeded or met 14 of our 15 sustainability goals in 2015, and used these results as a baseline for aggressive 2020 goals.
Selected 2020 Sustainability Goals include:
Reduce GHG emissions by 12%,
Increase renewable energies by 5%,
Reduce supplier packaging waste by 10%,
Increase solid waste diversion rate to 82%, and
Achieve Zero Waste certification for 20 sites.
Some examples of programs in place for meeting these goals include:
Facility infrastructure upgrades (heating, cooling, LED lights, Smart Building operations)
Commuter Services program (carpool, vanpool, bike- or walk-to-work, EV charging stations)
Reuse (donations, surplus sales) and specialized recycling programs (e-waste, batteries, nitrile gloves, writing instruments).
