We believe that business has a critical role to play in taking action on environmental, social and health issues facing our world. We’re part of a movement for change, and we’re here to make an impact.

Environmental Responsibility

We are committed to identifying and advocating for more sustainable options to reduce our effect on the environment.

Social Responsibility

We are allies for social causes, and we give back to the communities where we live and work. We oppose all forms of human trafficking and forced labor. 

  • 3D Systems Gives Back

    It’s important to us that we make a positive contribution to society and the communities where we work and live. We passionately and purposely encourage employees to support community programs and share their voice in social issues that align with our company values. 

    Our 3D Systems Gives Back is a volunteer program where our sites around the world choose a nonprofit or community service activity of their choice to volunteer together. To further expand our commitment, employees are allotted eight hours per calendar year to volunteer. 

  • Crisis Response

    The rapid spread of COVID-19 put many healthcare providers under great strain as they provided treatment and care to affected patients. 

    In the face of this extraordinary challenge, 3D Systems immediately stepped in to offer its services and issued a call to action to customers and partners to join us in sharing resources to help overcome the pandemic.

*OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) defines a recordable incident (i.e. recordable injury and illness) as 1) any work-related fatality, 2) any work-related injury or illness that results in loss of consciousness, days away from work, restricted work, or transfer to another job, 3) any work-related injury or illness requiring medical treatment beyond first aid, or 4) any work-related diagnosed case of cancer, chronic irreversible diseases, fractured or cracked bones or teeth, and punctured eardrums. Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) = # of injuries & illnesses x 200,000/# of hours worked by all employees. 3D Systems executed 4,979,268 work hours resulting in a OSHA Recordable TRIR of 0.60.
