FMC 2013 Sustainability Report - page 4

Chemistry touches all of us daily. Everything we
see, feel, smell, taste and hear involves some form
of chemical interaction or reaction. With the “right
chemistry,” FMC contributes to ensuring the well-
being of people and our planet.
Our mission is to feed the world, protect health
and provide the conveniences of life. We do this by
leveraging our scientific expertise, innovative culture
and collaborative relationships with partners across
our value chain. We consider the potential benefits
and liabilities of our products and work to make
decisions that support more sustainable products
both today and in the future.
We are continually seeking ways to further integrate
sustainability into our business processes. Prior
to investing capital in a new project, for example,
we now have a formal assessment procedure that
takes sustainability impacts into account. Our risk
management process factors in sustainability by
examining risk velocity (for example, defining a
realistic timeframe for a sustainability impact).
Planning and implementing these and other
evaluation techniques are part of an evolutionary
process that we consider on an ongoing basis.
