Our Environmental Commitment

Our Environmental Commitment

Happy Home. Happy Planet.
At 3M, we’re committed to developing innovative products that uphold our mission towards environmental responsibility. In keeping with this goal, we began a voluntary phase out of Perfluorooctanyl Chemical (PFOS) compounds from all Scotchgard™ brand product formulas. Since then, we’ve created a new generation of protective treatments for commercial and home use.

Our reformulated Scotchgard™ Brand Protector products not only have excellent protection performance as expected from Scotchgard™ Brand but also have enhanced environmental, health and safety benefits that pass regulatory reviews of the U.S. EPA and other environmental agencies around the world. So we’re proud to offer Scotchgard™ brand products as a sustainable alternative to other protective treatments currently available.

And, as always, Scotchgard™ brand products continue to keep carpets, upholstery and other surfaces looking better longer, so you can enjoy them for years to come. The planet also benefits when our things last longer. We use fewer raw materials because we’re making fewer new products, using less energy, and generating less waste. You’re happy, and the planet is too.
