and functional area to engage in detailed
discussions that create value for FMC
and its stakeholders.
Facing Major Global Challenges
FMC’s mission and focus on improving
lives worldwide led us to pinpoint five
“market shaping shifts” that we can
influence. When we began our formal
sustainability program in 2011, these
shifts served as a blueprint for taking
a more strategic and comprehensive
approach to our responsibilities in
meeting the needs of a rapidly
changing world.
Going forward we will refer to the
“shifts” as “major global challenges.”
This revised terminology reflects the fact
that these issues are among society’s
most profound concerns and have
significant implications for our shared
future. Because FMC and our products
can make a positive contribution to
mitigating the problems, they frame our
direction and give greater meaning to
our work.
More than anything, we want to shape
FMC’s future as a contributor to a better
world. Creating solutions that address
these major global challenges are vital
to the stakeholders with whom we
partner and share the goal of a more
sustainable future.
Evolving Our Role
FMC has made a choice to embrace
sustainability. We know that our
influence goes beyond our company and
our immediate stakeholders into the
broader world. As a leading specialty
chemicals company, we are in a position
to make a meaningful difference – and
we are committed to doing so.

sustainability into existing
