The 3M Company was recently named one of the Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company, a world leader in progressive business media branding. The honor was announced with an emphasis on 3M’s smog-reducing roofing granules. These solar-powered roofing granules represent just one of 3M’s 60,000 innovative products for industrial, commercial, and residential use. Other popular examples of 3M innovation include Scotch Tape and Post-it Notes.
