[2013/04/19]3M Hong Kong helps nurture a greener Earth

n honour of the Earth Day, 3M Hong Kong announce that it will continue its bolster to Friends of the Earth (Hong Kong) by serving as its Jupiter – the biggest partner – in Earth Partner Program 2013-14 and taking part in building a low-carbon community. This marks the company’s persistent support to this charitable environmental program since 2006.

For years, 3M has been performing various green deeds initiated by FoE(HK) in conserving the environment including: joining the “Power Smart Contest” for 4 consecutive years to reduce a total of over 11% electricity consumption, equivalent to stopping more than 53 tons of CO2 emission; supporting the “Dim It Charter” to prevent electricity wastage in lighting and help curb light pollution; signing the “Conscientious Recycling Charter” to properly treat electronic waste to stop contamination; supporting “Water Conservation” and better water catchment by participating in the fund-raising “River Walk” to preserve the Dongjiang River which provides over 70% of drinking water to Hong Kong, and making in-kind donations to support the education program for students living at poor conditioned River source; taking “Off at Lunch” action by turning off unnecessary lighting or computer monitors as a daily habit during lunch time; and encouraging employees to sign up as individual volunteers or members to involve in various green and educational activities of FoE(HK).

3M believes that through concerted efforts, greater strides can be made to nurture a greener and healthier Earth!
