Environmental: In 2021, we advanced our leadership with a $1 billion commitment to achieve carbon neutrality, reduce water use, improve water quality and reduce our use of plastics. We have put forward ambitious goals to bend the curve – for example, a 20% water reduction by 2025 and 50% carbon reduction by 2030 – while delivering on pledges to make our factories and communities more sustainable.
Social: We continue to take actions and provide meaningful investments that will enable 3M to build a strong foundation for equitable outcomes in the future. We are progressing our talent recruitment strategies and processes to build a workforce that has future-focused skillsets and reflects the diversity of our customers, suppliers and communities. In 2021, we are proud to share that 3M has achieved pay equity across all of our global regions.
In May, 3M will also launch our new Global Impact Report – a combination of our Annual, Sustainability, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion reports. The Global Impact Report allows our stakeholders to see a more complete picture of the value 3M places on our commitments and includes our 2021 progress.
At 3M, we apply science in collaborative ways to improve lives daily as our employees connect with customers all around the world. Learn more about 3M’s creative solutions to global challenges at www.3M.com or on Twitter @3M or @3MNews.
