3M's commitment is to actively contribute to sustainable development through environmental protection, social responsibility and economic progress. To us, that means meeting the needs of society today, while respecting the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
3M is fundamentally a science-based company. They produce thousands of imaginative products, and are a leader in scores of markets – from health care and highway safety to office products and abrasives and adhesives. Their success begins with their ability to apply their technologies – often in combination – to an endless array of real-world customer needs. Of course, all of this is made possible by the people of 3M and their singular commitment to make life easier and better for people around the world.
