    • Seefeld, Germany

      From 2010 to 2014, 3M improved its energy efficiency as a company, indexed to net sales, by 50%. Looking to the future, our 2025 Corporate Sustainability Goals include improving energy efficiency by another 30%, as well as increasing the use of renewable energy to 25% of  total electricity use.

      One location that epitomizes this dedication to energy conservation is the 3M Oral Care plant in Seefeld, Germany. In May, 2015, the Seefeld site was awarded its fifth 3M Platinum Energy Award, in recognition of exceptional teamwork on several fronts. In 2014, the Seefeld team:

      • Improved energy efficiency by 7.5%.
      • Implemented savings projects accounting for 5.4% of their total energy spend.
      • Successfully met the requirements of the ISO 50001 energy management standard.
