At 3M we use science to solve problems. It’s in our DNA. We view global challenges as opportunities to innovate and we are proud to be part of a global solution.
At 3M, we framed our 2025 sustainability goals around shared global challenges. Our ambition, working collaboratively, is to realize a world where every life is improved – where natural resources are reliably available, people everywhere have access to education and opportunity, and communities are safe, healthy, connected and thriving.
On September 25, 2015, the United Nations released the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals designed to build upon the historic work of the Millennium Development Goals and stimulate important action in three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social, and environmental.
Below are just a few of the ways our goals at 3M are #improvinglives in accordance with, and in support of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Respect our planet’s resources and reimagine waste as a nutrient to ensure we have abundance for future generations.
Promote clean water for everyone, everywhere so that every person, business and community has the water they need to thrive.
Transform the way the world uses energy because it impacts the climate, and the climate impacts everyone.
Improve the health and safety of people worldwide so we can all focus on what matters most to us.
Support empowerment and enrichment to provide people everywhere the opportunity to live life to its fullest.
