We are developing the next generation of solutions.
We never stop innovating. We're always developing new ways to help customers meet their environmental challenges, along with ways to reduce our products' environmental impact.
For example, our 3M's Corporate Research Laboratory is identifying and promoting the use of renewable materials as replacements for petroleum-based polymers and monomers in 3M films, fibers, adhesives, molded products, and more. Researchers' work will make our products more environmentally sustainable and will help ensure a more cost-effective source of raw materials, as oil becomes scarcer and prices for it fluctuate.
