At Climate Week NYC, seeking solutions at the nexus of climate, water and social issues
This week the ESG Insider podcast is on the ground at Climate Week NYC for a special series of interviews from the sidelines of The Nest Climate Campus. In this episode, we sit down with Gayle Schueller, 3M's Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer. 3M is a technology and manufacturing company with more than 60,000 products in its portfolio ranging from office and home supplies to industrial products and solutions related to safety, transportation, electronics and healthcare. Gayle explains how 3M is working to reduce its carbon emissions and water use and impacts while also integrating social issues such as environmental justice into its processes and decision making. For example, she says the company is using the US Environmental Protection Agency's environmental justice screening and mapping tool. "We recognize that places where there tends to be a disproportionate effect from carbon emissions and water, whether it’s usage or quality or availability ... tend to be the communities that are otherwise disadvantaged as well," Gayle tells us.
