FMC Corporation issues Annual Sustainability Report
FMC Corporation has released its 2017 report on the company's global sustainability performance, including progress toward multi-year goals and the future of sustainable agriculture. The report, "Powering Progress, Growing Results," is FMC's seventh annual update, and is aligned with GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Standards.
The report details the company's sustainable product development, environmental goals, product stewardship and community engagement programs, safety record, and its commitment to diversity and inclusion in its workforce.
"As the company transforms, our commitment to sustainability is steadfast," said Pierre Brondeau, FMC CEO and chairman. "FMC has a broader global footprint today with the addition of 14 manufacturing sites and 15 R&D facilities around the world. Now we're an even larger international company, and it's important that we're aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
"Sustainability is a catalyst for developing innovative technologies and engaging with partners," Brondeau added. "Now is the time for public and private institutions to step up, collaborate and partner globally to solve food security issues and protect the environment."
