3M Company Global Energy Management Implementation Case Study

Utilizing standardization to double the size of the ISO 50001 & SEP Enterprise

3M’s journey with ISO 50001 began as a pilot venture with the joint support of the US Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada in 2011. 3M volunteered two facilities: 3M Cordova in Illinois, US and 3M Brockville in Ontario, Canada. Growing from two sites in the pilot to now 56 sites globally that are ISO 50001 certified; 36 of which have taken the additional step to achieve SEP certification (certified by Canadian Welding Bureau/Korean Energy Agency and accredited by ANSI National Accreditation/ DQS GmbH).
