ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Ethisphere Institute today recognized 3M for ethics and integrity in business conduct and compliance for the fifth straight year. 3M is one of only a handful of industrial companies worldwide to be recognized this year.

Recognizing that corporate integrity, character and transparency impact the public trust of companies, the Ethisphere Institute defines and advances standards of ethical business practices through data-driven insights.

“Our company maintains an unwavering commitment to ethics and I am very proud of this acknowledgement from Ethisphere,” said Veena Lakkundi, 3M’s vice president and chief compliance officer. “At 3M, we achieve this when all of us at the company strive to live the 3M Code of Conduct.
