Raytheon Company

Waltham, Massachusetts

ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence

Raytheon Company is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security, and other government markets. Raytheon's mature energy program continues to build on its solid foundation to sustain savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is the third time Raytheon has received ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence recognition. Key accomplishments in 2009 include:

  • Reducing energy intensity by 10%, equivalent to saving 117 billion Btu. The company's savings of over 20 million kWh is equal to the amount of electricity required to power a community of 2,000 homes. 
  • Expanding its successful Energy Citizens Campaign, an energy culture development program, to achieve the participation of 29,000 U.S. employees, or 44%, exceeding Raytheon's enterprise-wide goal.
  • Enhancing the company's data management system to track not only energy, but also water, renewables, and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Training hundreds of new Energy Champions in 2009 to strengthen its site-based energy teams. 
  • Sharing Raytheon's energy management program with other businesses and federal, state, and local organizations, many of which are existing and prospective ENERGY STAR partners.
  • Raytheon is also an active member in EPA's Climate Leaders program. The company exceeded its first greenhouse gas reduction goal of 33% normalized for revenue by 5% and achieved it one year early in 2008. In 2009, it established a 10% absolute greenhouse gas reduction goal to be achieved by 2015.
