3M Company Global Energy Management Implementation Case Study

Energy Efficiency as a 3M Competitive Advantage

This case study describes how 3M facilities were among the first to pilot the implementation of ISO 50001 in 2011, and, since that time, 3M has implemented the standard at eighteen facilities in seven countries. Superior Energy Performance (ISO 50021) has been implemented at three of the eighteen facilities. 3M facilities participating in ISO 50001 and ISO 50021 have shown an energy performance improvement of 10.5% over the past three years.
