GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) EMISSIONS & ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by ~30% over a baseline year of 2019*
L3Harris is committed to reducing GHG emissions associated with our operations. We focus on reducing energy consumption in our facilities through energy-efficient lighting and lighting controls, higher-efficiency heating and cooling systems, improved building management systems, and process improvements. L3Harris invests in eco-treasure hunts to identify improvements in energy efficiency throughout our operations.

L3Harris took steps towards sourcing more renewable energy in support of increasing clean and sustainable energy in the electric grids where we operate and reduce the indirect GHG emissions associated with the electricity we purchase to power our operations. A new large-scale solar infrastructure project, built in part by Texas veterans, began commercial operation under a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) between L3Harris and Lightsource bp at the end of 2021. The solar power agreement is the equivalent of eliminating about 110,000 metric tons of CO2 per year or removing 24,000 cars from the road every year. The agreement will help L3Harris meet its commitment to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2026.


*L3Harris leveraged the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) tool to calculate our GHG reduction target. 

WATER CONSERVATION

Reduce water use by 20% over a baseline year of 2019
Our focus on water includes evaluating all aspects of our business operations for conservation opportunities ranging from irrigation controls, low flow toilets/faucets and cooling tower efficiencies, to new technologies and processes to minimize the amount of water consumed onsite. As part of our strategic roadmap for achieving our goals, L3Harris works with internal and external subject matter experts and engineers to develop, evaluate and implement large-scale water conservation solutions for our operations. Our investment in eco-treasure hunts extends to identifying water conservation projects throughout our operations.
 

SOLID WASTE PRACTICES

Achieve at least a 75% solid waste diversion rate from landfill
Our emphasis on solid waste includes a comprehensive evaluation of all operations to fully understand the processes that generate waste in order to identify reduction initiatives, reuse options and diversion from landfill opportunities. The primary strategies that are leveraged include solid waste characterization assessments and establishing effective partnerships with our solid waste haulers to identify continuous improvement opportunities. L3Harris has embedded internal resources who specialize in solid waste, these individuals are leveraged across the organization to drive change.
