Explore our ambitious targets for environmental protection and resource conservation. We established 14 sustainability goals for 2020 and set a path for long-term sustainability improvements.

We are making strong progress against our 14 sustainability goals. Most notably, we’ve reduced our U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent since 2015, exceeding our goal of 12 percent.

LEADING IN ENERGY MANAGEMENT

For more than 19 years, we’ve partnered with ENERGY STAR® to promote strategic energy management. For the 12th consecutive year, the U.S. EPA awarded Raytheon its ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year — Sustained Excellence Award for our leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency.
