Through global challenges of all kinds, 3M has partnered with governments and industry partners to help the world recover.

What we’ve learned from this pandemic presents opportunities to be better prepared for the next crisis we will face as an interconnected world. 3M rose to the challenge of COVID-19, drawing from our past responses to other outbreaks and epidemics.
