FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC), a leading global agricultural sciences company, was recently recognized for its excellence in Environment, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG), ranking among the top U.S. companies on Newsweek's 2024 Most Responsible Companies list for the third consecutive year. The company jumped an impressive 75 spots to rank 60 out of a total of 600 companies. FMC is ranked 8th in the Materials and Chemicals industry and is the only crop protection company to make the list.

"For more than a decade, FMC has prioritized sustainability across our business," says Julie DiNatale, vice president and chief sustainability officer. "Our holistic approach to ESG continues to create value for all FMC stakeholders, whether it's driving efficiencies in our operations, bringing climate-smart solutions to growers or ensuring the wellbeing of employees and people across our supply chain. We are very proud to see our efforts recognized as we continue our journey."

America's Most Responsible Companies were selected based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability reports as well as an independent survey asking U.S. residents about their perception of company activities. The final list recognizes the top 600 most responsible companies in the U.S. across 14 industries.

FMC's dedication to environmental and social responsibility has also been recognized across the investment community, including by Bloomberg, which as of October 2023, ranked FMC first in the agricultural chemicals industry for performance on material ESG issues. Analysts cite the company's industry-leading net-zero by 2035 target, which was verified by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) earlier this year, as well as strong corporate and ESG governance as indicators of FMC's leadership in this space.

Additional information about FMC's sustainability goals and progress is available in its 2022 Sustainability Report.
