FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC), a leading global agricultural sciences company, has made Barron's annual list of America's Most Sustainable Companies for the first time, and is the only agricultural company included on the list. 

"Sustainability has become a key indicator of company performance, not just for FMC but for any company looking to compete in the global marketplace," said Mark Douglas, president and CEO. "FMC continues to invest significantly in sustainability across our company, from research and new product development to more efficient production, packaging and logistics around the world. We're honored to be included in this year's list—it shows that our efforts are gaining traction and making a difference."

The rankings, compiled by Calvert Research and Management, an investment management company specializing in responsible investing, evaluated the top 1,000 publicly held American companies by market value on their performance for five constituent groups: shareholders, employees, customers, communities and the planet. FMC ranks 72nd on Barron's top 100 list.

"FMC has set ambitious goals over the past year that will challenge the way our company and business operate," said Karen Totland, vice president and chief sustainability officer for FMC. "Whether it's our goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2035 or our efforts to achieve gender balance and race equity among our global workforce, we are working to drive meaningful change in our company, community and industry."

Barron's is the second major publication this year to include FMC in its rankings of most sustainable companies.
