3M is one of the most acclaimed companies in the world for its commitment to the environment.
For more than 40 years, 3M has been a leader among global companies – having pioneered the concept of sustainability in its manufacturing processes, beginning with its groundbreaking Pollution Prevention Pays (3P) Programme in 1975.
We have also set aggressive environmental goals for our company to address climate change, water stewardship, air emissions and waste reduction while increasing the recyclability and recycled content of our packaging.
As a global company, we believe that we have a responsibility to society, in general, and especially to the communities in which we live and work. This includes protecting endangered species and habitats. We have donated more than $20 million to The Nature Conservancy to safeguard biodiversity and habitat throughout the United States, China, Mexico and Brazil.
