Appliance industry supplier 3M, for the seventh straight year, was named a winner of the Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award for its comprehensive worldwide energy conservation efforts. No other company has earned the award seven times. The awards are presented annually by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy and were presented at a ceremony on April 12, 2011, in Washington, DC.

“3M’s long-term leadership and commitment to energy efficiency demonstrate the types of accomplishments we can all achieve in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our global environment,” said the EPA’s acting director of atmospheric programs, Elizabeth Craig. She said the “Sustained Excellence” is the highest Energy Star award.

In 2010, 59 energy efficiency projects related to 3M’s 3P program (Pollution Prevention Pays) were implemented worldwide, reducing 3M’s global energy consumption by some 281 billion Btus. 3M said that, with the 3P projects, a total of 153 internal energy efficiency initiatives were undertaken in 2010, saving close to $8 million in the first three quarters.

In terms of carbon footprint, 3M reduced its greenhouse gas emissions worldwide by 77% from 1990 to December 2009, and reduced U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 79%. 3M said its rate of success is accelerating, and a new goal to achieve an additional 5% global reduction between 2006 and 2011 is already well ahead of that objective, with a 52% reduction achieved between 2006 and year-end 2009.
