As Senior Vice President of Research and Development and Chief Technology Officer, I have the opportunity each day to see how our technologies, our science, and our people help to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges and improve lives.
Whether it is through the incorporation of sustainable materials in our products or helping customers be more sustainable, we recognize that societal challenges both require and provide opportunity for game-changing innovation. At 3M, Sustainability serves to drive innovation – in our manufacturing, in our products, and in new technologies.
It’s inspiring to see how working toward a greater good, and doing so with creativity and collaboration, sparks new ideas and applying science to life, drives progress. Furthermore, it is inspiring to see how individual contributors can create positive change to drive business opportunities as well as personal fulfillment – something I see within 3M teams every day.
As we look to further leverage Sustainability to enable innovation across the company, in partnership with customers and partners, we are thankful to be doing so on a foundation of science and innovation. We continue today to be a leader in Sustainability, while recognizing our unique capability to innovate in ways that serve both business growth, advance every company, enhance every home, and improve every life.
