3M Earns ENERGY STAR 'Sustained Excellence' Award For Record Ninth Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: MMM

“The initiatives undertaken each year are broadly intended not only to continue our own progress but also to share what we’ve learned, and to encourage participation among our industrial suppliers while stimulating new avenues of research in the academic world,” says Schultz. “The overall objective is a better environment through wise energy management.”

3M established a new set of sustainability goals in 2010 to be attained by 2015. Chief among those goals are reduction of volatile air emissions by 15 percent and solid waste by ten percent, and a 25-percent improvement in energy efficiency. The energy-efficiency objective already has been achieved and exceeded.
