3M recently announced it has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a decade of energy management achievements with the EPA ENERGY STAR® Sustained Excellence Award for the 10th year in a row. 3M is reportedly the only industrial company in the world to achieve this milestone.

“It is an honor that the EPA has recognized 3M and provided the framework for corporate energy efficiency,” said Steve Schultz, Corporate Energy manager. “3M is known for its commitment to innovation, and that commitment doesn’t just apply to the products we invent. We have spent the past 10 years, and in fact many years before that, continually seeking out ways that we can improve our processes, raw materials, and more in order to achieve greater efficiency and resource savings. Moreover, we endeavor to share our best practices with our constituents in an effort to pay it forward.”

The annual ENERGY STAR award reportedly honors organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through best practices and organization-wide energy savings.
