Ethics Resources for Suppliers
We are committed not only to having a sound and robust Ethics & Business Conduct program within our organization, but committed to helping ensure that one exists throughout our supply chain as well.
We engage our suppliers to help them build their ethics programs in two ways:
Ethics Supplier Mentoring: We partner one-on-one with select suppliers to share best practices, benchmark, and provide recommendations to build a more robust and effective Ethics & Business Conduct program. Visit the Supplier Mentoring page for more information and to apply to participate.
Self-Study Ethics Program Resources: Enhance your firm’s Ethics & Business Conduct Program using the valuable information provided below. This includes a self-assessment to gauge the strength of your program against best practices and legal requirements.
We have many useful resources for our current or potential supplier community to learn about establishing an ethics program and to understand the key elements of an effective ethics program. Contact us for further guidance and assistance.
The Aerospace Industries Association of America (AIA) and AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD) jointly developed the Global Principles of Business Ethics for the Aerospace and Defense Industry (“Global Principles”). Lockheed Martin is proud to endorse and adopt these Global Principles.
