Play by the rules, whether working with government, customers, or suppliers.
As a law-abiding corporate citizen, 3M values its reputation and working relationships with government officials and entities throughout the world. Many 3M business units do business with one or more governmental bodies. This may include business with federal, state or local authorities, or with government prime contractors or subcontractors in the United States, or with national or local government agencies or government prime contractors or subcontractors outside the United States. Many laws and regulations apply in these situations. 3M is committed to being a responsible company with uncompromising integrity in all its dealings with local, state/provincial and national governments, and their prime contractors and subcontractors around the world. In all of 3M’s activities with governments, at 3M we carefully follow the laws, rules, and regulations that govern our government interactions.
