Committed to our planet and every life on it

  • At 3M, we have been setting global environmental goals since 1990. As a strong part of our company history, these goals have helped us dramatically reduce our own environmental footprint and establish 3M as a leader in environmental stewardship. In 2017, we entered the second year of an ambitious new 10-year goal cycle. The 2025 Sustainability Goals we are now pursuing reflect our heightened commitment to going beyond compliance and thinking holistically about how our operations and products affect the world and every life in it.

    We see the opportunity, over the next 10 years, to create systemic change that addresses global sustainability challenges involving raw materials, water, climate and energy, health and safety, as well as education and development.
