Energy reduction is a cornerstone of our sustainability program. Using less energy supports our competitive advantage goal. It also advances our sustainability vision by helping us conserve our planet’s natural resources and by reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants.
Raytheon has been a proud partner for more than 18 years in ENERGY STAR®, a voluntary U.S. EPA program that promotes strategic energy management.
For the 11th year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded Raytheon its ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year — Sustained Excellence Award for our leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency accomplishments.
The award acknowledges our continuous reduction in energy consumption and our strong energy programs and initiatives.
Energy projects include switching to energy-efficient LED lighting; installing state-of-the art building automation systems; upgrading central plant facilities and making improvements to compressed air systems, lab areas and production equipment; and implementing Smart Campus technologies.
Between 2008 and 2015, we reduced our U.S. energy consumption by 18 percent, saving more than 3,350 billion BTUs cumulatively. Since then, we have cut energy use by an additional 4.4 percent.
Our integrated energy management strategy spans our buildings, manufacturing processes, information technology, engineering design and communications. In 2017, we recorded a number of notable accomplishments, including:
- Advanced the implementation of Smart Campus technology
- Installed energy-efficient LED lighting
- Completed design and construction of a major energy-efficient data center
- Earned ENERGY STAR Certification of three office buildings
