Sustainability in the Oil and Gas Industry

In recent years, concern for sustainability has become an integral part of the corporate culture at companies all over the world. Initially driven by the need for regulatory compliance, today there is a growing awareness that sustainable products and business practices are not only about protecting health and the environment, but also about improving productivity, maintaining shareholder value, reducing business risk and controlling costs.

Sustainability is a natural extension of our values.

At 3M, we're building on more than 70 years of practices that support economic, social, and environmental sustainability. We are guided by three strategic principles that make sustainability implicit in everything we do:
Economic Success: We build lasting customer relationships by developing differentiated, practical, and ingenious solutions to their sustainability challenges. Environmental Stewardship: We provide practical solutions and products to address our environmental challenges for ourselves and our customers. Social Responsibility: We engage key stakeholders in dialogue and take action to improve our sustainability performance.

Our responsibility to you as a customer doesn’t end with the sale; rather it is to ensure that our products will continue to provide you with the most effective, cost-efficient and sustainable solution possible throughout their useful life cycle.
