3M joins the Earth Partner Program
3M Hong Kong Limited joins the Earth Partner Program, an annual charitable environmental awareness-building program organized by Friends of the Earth Hong Kong.
In the Earth Partner Program, 3M is entitled “Jupiter” because it is the biggest corporation in the program, just as Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. The theme of Earth Partner this year is “Low-Carbon Community;Treasure Earth Resources”, which emphasizes the close relationship between human being and the natural environment, it sustains when we treasure. 3M, by pledging its support to the program, will participate in green initiatives within its communal and working area, and help to educate the public by spreading the message that everyone can make a difference in creating a better living environment.
The goal of this Program fits perfectly with 3M’s business philosophy: an active and responsible citizenship can make a successful company even stronger. For the past 3 decades, 3M has been working diligently in protecting Mother Nature. In the 1970s, 3M was ahead of its time in realizing that preventing pollution is a smarter approach than spending on treatments. Its global Pollution Prevention Pays (3P) Program has been contributing significantly to the betterment of society and sustainability of the physical environment as well as the company.
