3M is committed to responsible environmental stewardship and protecting natural resources. The company works with federal, state and local authorities regarding environmental aspects of all our operations and is dedicated to acting with integrity in the way we treat our customers and the way we treat the environments in which we operate.

On a global scale, 3M has invested more than $625 million on research, technology and cleanup efforts related to PFAS. More than $50 million has gone toward installing carbon filtration systems for drinking water sources. More than $100 million has been invested in testing water sources around the country to better understand the quality of both groundwater and drinking water in communities. We will continue to invest in cutting-edge cleanup technology and work with communities to identify where this technology can make a difference. We also welcome testing by independent scientific bodies in addition to conducting our own ongoing testing.

We understand people have concerns about chemicals in the environment, and people should have confidence that their drinking water is safe. That is why 3M will continue to dedicate time and resources to researching PFAS. The more we all know about our water, the better off our communities will be.
