Protect 3M's interests, assets, and information.
3M’s reputation is earned every day – in all of our locations by all of our people. 3M's people are loyal. They put 3M's interests first when doing their jobs; they do not allow personal activities to conflict with 3M's business; and they carefully protect 3M's information, assets, trademarks, intellectual property and interests. At the same time, we also protect 3M’s assets--physical property, equipment, electronic files and confidential information. We cannot allow our stewardship of these assets to be influenced by personal, family or other outside interests that may conflict with 3M’s best interests.
