3M is continually making progress on its environmental initiatives announced in February 2021, and is on pace to meet its water stewardship goals in the coming years.
- State-of-the-art water treatment systems will remove materials in process water, including PFAS. These are expected to reduce PFAS discharges by more than 95% globally by 2025, and more than 99% by 2030.
- We are taking immediate steps to reduce water usage at our facilities by 10% by 2022, 20% by 2025, and 25% by 2030.
- We continue to make significant progress to remediate PFOA and PFOS at sites globally where we manufactured or disposed of these materials.
By convening all relevant stakeholders – from industry, government, technical and other backgrounds – our country can develop a comprehensive approach to PFAS. 3M is committed to working with Congress and continuing to work closely with other parties to develop a path forward.
