Applying science to improve every life

3M has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and it is a core value of our company. We have been a consistent industry leader in addressing sustainability issues, beginning with the establishment of our Pollution Prevention Pays program in 1975 and extending to our ambitious 2025 Sustainability Goals and Sustainability Value Commitment, which requires all new products to demonstrate how they drive impact for the greater good. 3M recently announced new goals for renewable energy use, advancing the circular economy, and positively impacting communities around the world, and we are on a path to do much more. Together with our employees, customers, partners, governments and communities, 3M is committed to a science-based, collaborative approach to solving shared global challenges and improving lives.
