FMC previously won the award in 2017, 2019 and 2020.

PHILADELPHIA, June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --

FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC) was honored today by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) as the Responsible Care Company of the Year, an award recognizing FMC for its excellence and leadership in environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) performance. It is the fourth time since 2017 that FMC has been named ACC Responsible Care Company of the Year.

"I am very proud of our company and pleased to accept the Responsible Care® Company of the Year Award on behalf of our more than 6,000 employees who work every day to ensure we deliver products safely and sustainably," said FMC president and CEO Mark Douglas. "This award is an acknowledgement and validation for every FMC employee who invests their time, attention and extra effort into their work. It is theirs to celebrate."

FMC is among the safest companies in the chemical industry. In 2021, the company achieved a record-low recordable injury rate of 0.066, which can be attributed to a culture of safety that extends to non-manufacturing employees through a global program called TH!NK SAFE. The program helps all employees, whether they work in an office, lab, field or production facility, to understand and apply the fundamentals of safety.

"The Responsible Care program helps the chemical industry operate with safety as a top priority. It is the mainstay of our industry's commitment to health, safety, security and environmental protection," said ACC President and CEO Chris Jahn.

"For FMC, there is nothing more important than safety," said Douglas. "We believe the key to creating a safety culture at work is to apply the same focus, intention and dedication to safety in every aspect of our lives."

FMC has also made significant progress on its sustainability objectives. In 2021, the company committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2035, an ambitious goal that will set aggressive reduction standards not only for FMC, but suppliers and vendors as well.

"Our sense of responsibility to people and the planet extends beyond our company walls to the communities where we operate and the farms we serve," Douglas said. "We have an opportunity to leave this world a better place for the next generation. For that to happen, we must act now and we must act boldly."

Net-zero is just one part of FMC's broader sustainability platform which, in addition to climate change, drives progress on food security, conservation and social justice. To read FMC's recently published 2021 sustainability report, please visit
