Another Big Tick for 3M UK and Ireland

Experience 3M Newsletter Montage
Big Tick

3M UK and Ireland has received a Big Tick award from Business in the Community (BITC) for the second year running.

A Big Tick is the first level of accolade in the Responsible Business Awards, the UK's longest-running and most respected awards scheme recognising businesses that are making a positive difference to society and to the environment.

BITC chief executive Stephen Howard said: "The Responsible Business Awards shine a much needed spotlight on the powerful impact of business. I congratulate 3M for its Big Tick reaccreditation, which is a powerful symbol of a business doing more to bring about change."

The 3M submission for the award focused on how sustainability is a way of life for the company and highlighted the success of the Pollution Prevention Pays (3P) programme. Last year 55 projects were completed in the UK and Ireland, resulting in annual savings of £1.9 million.

Special mention was given to products such as 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids, a high-performing inert chemical coolant with exceptional environmental benefits, and 3M™ Envision Wrap Films, the world's first non-PVC films, suitable for a wide variety of applications such as wrapping cars and boats.

The work carried out by 3Mers in the community also featured in the application.

Managing director Paul Keel said: "Winning a Big Tick award for the second year running is thanks to the continued efforts of everyone across the business and it's very pleasing for us all that these efforts have been recognised by the BITC."
