3M aims of completely renewable energy

3M has announced that it is committing to 100 per cent renewable electricity in all its facilities globally, including the immediate switch to renewables for its headquarters.

“3M is flipping the switch to becoming powered 100 per cent by renewable energy,” said 3M CEO Mike Roman. “We are continuing to step up our leadership toward a more sustainable future – in our own operations, and in solutions for our customers.”

As part of the company’s pledge, it is joining RE100, the initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP. 3M is committed to the move to sourcing 100 per cent of electricity from renewable sources and has set an interim target to source at least 50 per cent of its electricity from renewables by 2025.

“By joining RE100 and switching to 100 per cent renewable electricity globally, 3M is building sustainability into its business growth strategy and showing the two go hand-in-hand,” said Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group. “Seeing such a large manufacturer commit to ‘go all in’ on renewables to produce sustainable new products is an encouraging step forward. Big brands like this can influence positive action from other companies and customers and accelerate the clean energy transition around the world.”
