Raytheon has been a leader in energy efficiency since the 1970’s. Raytheon has continued a successful energy program during the past several years that contributes to business growth, customer success and environmental sustainability. The company’s 80,000 employees, as well as contractors and suppliers, are engaged in the Raytheon Energy Action Program (REAP) to reduce energy consumption at more than 200 U.S. and International Raytheon locations. In the Northeast, Raytheon locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire have demonstrated particularly strong leadership in energy efficiency.
Raytheon has been an ENERGY STAR® Partner since 1999, and was recognized in 2003 with a Leadership in Energy Management award. Raytheon also partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Climate Leaders initiative. Efficiency improvements over the last ten years addressing lighting, HVAC, building envelope, office equipment and business needs have resulted in a 26 percent improvement in energy use for Raytheon Northeast locations and an annual savings of $2 million.
To manage Raytheon’s Northeast energy portfolio, full time energy engineers have been employed since 1996. Recently, a network of “Energy Champions” was established to work closely with facilities management to ensure equipment is shut off when not needed for business purposes. Facilities staff also attend numerous training seminars offered by utilities, vendors, federal and state agencies, and industry groups. Raytheon Facilities Engineering staff includes certified Building Operators, Certified Energy Managers (CEM) and Professional Engineers (PE).
