Starting at COP26, new partnership will advance the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals
ST. PAUL, Minn., November 2, 2021 /3BL Media/ - 3M (NYSE: MMM) will highlight the unique challenges and opportunities manufacturers face in combatting climate change in a candid conversation with global peers at the Conference of the Parties (COP26) on Wednesday, Nov. 10 from 2:00-3:30pm GMT. The event will take place within the United Nations Climate Change (UNFCCC) pavilion as part of its new strategic partnership with 3M.
A global pandemic and social unrest underscored the reality of health inequities around the globe. Now, communities, companies and individuals ask: What can we do to help? 3M Health Care is partnering with community-based organizations and academic institutions to address health equity and help more people get the resources they need to thrive. Those partnerships are powered by one of 3M’s greatest assets – its people.
When Charlene Vance, a customer operations leader for the Transportation and Electronics Business Group, started working in corporate America 20 years ago, she had a strict personal rule to not talk about race, politics or religion at work. In 2020, after the killing of George Floyd, that changed.
“I could not afford to stay silent anymore,” said Vance. “I have two beautiful daughters and we want to do it for them and the next generation coming up.”
The role individuals play within a company can enact change. But when you share that role with an entire network of people, the work of advancing social justice and racial equity starts to make wider systemic change.
For many 3Mers around the world, working in an office has become the exception to the rule. While COVID-19 vaccines are readily available in many places and physical distancing protocols remain in place at 3M facilities, the future of work isn’t necessarily a full-time return to the office.
That’s where Work Your Way comes in, 3M’s trust-based approach that lets employees create a schedule that helps them work when and where they can most effectively.
