  • Post category:Blog

St. Paul, MN (April 20, 2012) – The environmental benefits of window films are well known as films contribute to homes and buildings using less energy to keep spaces cool. When it comes to energy savings, 3M, a leading manufacturer of Window Films, not only talks the talk but walks the walk. 3M takes pride in manufacturing an energy efficient product in an energy efficient manner.

For a record-setting eighth year in a row, 3M has been named a winner of the ENERGY STAR® “Sustained Excellence” Award for its comprehensive world-wide energy conservation efforts. The award, presented annually by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, is the highest ENERGY STAR award.

No other industrial company has achieved this distinction as many times. Last year, 3M attained more than $8.2 million in energy savings through 220 employee-inspired projects. This is equivalent to eliminating 190,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions, or the energy used by 37,800 passenger vehicles in a year.

3M’s commitment to finding more ways to manage energy use responsibly and efficiently remains unabated, and their efforts are as vigorous and creative as ever. Energy efficiency is thoroughly ingrained in the corporate culture as good business practice, and good for the communities in which 3M has a presence.
