Company Information

Business Conduct

At 3M, we believe that what the company stands for is just as important as what we sell.  We are proud to have built a century-old tradition of operating with uncompromising honesty and integrity.

What We Stand For

A good corporate reputation does not develop by accident. 3M's reputation is rooted in our corporate culture and embodied in our Business Conduct Policies, the code of conduct we first introduced in 1988.  Today's policies embody the same spirit of integrity that has always been at the core of our company; they spell out what legal and ethical conduct means in everything we do, wherever in the world we are doing business on 3M's behalf.

Our Commitment to Legal and Ethical Business Conduct
