Supplier Sustainability Solutions:

  • 3M would like our raw material and packaging selections to promote a “Circular Economy.”  In a circular economy, companies strive to keep materials “in play” as long as possible (e.g. use recycled materials, develop durable/recyclable products, create novel end-of-use solutions, etc.) and to utilize regenerative/renewable materials. The information provided in this request form will reside in an internal, 3M global repository, hosted in the U.S. and made available to Sourcing personnel, developers and other team members within the company looking to identify circular economy alternatives.

    Please access the Sustainability Solutions request to provide your company’s information.

    If you have questions, please send an email to Responsible Sourcing @ (copy and paste into your email and remove the spaces).
