Sustainability + You
In order for FMC to be a leader in sustainability and create positive global change, we need you to play an essential part in our formula for progress. FMC’s leadership continues its strong commitment to increasing FMC’s sustainability gains across the company’s operations, innovation and business practices, but ultimately, the energy and ideas needed to make these sustainability gains a reality depends on you.
Our company has focused on safety in the workplace, at home and everywhere in between. Similarly, we are working to make sustainable ways of doing business and living our lives to become second nature. By making small changes in our daily habits, we can make even greater progress in sustainability. Together, we can shape a sustainable future by employing our workforce’s steadfast focus and dedication, and by engaging our families, friends, and communities on matters of sustainability. It only takes you…
We hope to hear from our employees and stakeholders about how they are working to create a more sustainable future.

At the FMC Health and Nutrition site in Girvan, United Kingdom, staff saw an opportunity to significantly curtail the amount of site waste being sent to local landfills.
