Our Commitment to Sustainability

GRI G4 Content Index

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an independent, international organization that has pioneered sustainability reporting since the late 1990s. GRI provides the world’s most widely used standards on sustainabiity reporting and disclosure. FMC’s 2015 Sustainability Report and this Content Index align with the GRI G4 Guidelines’ “In Accordance” – Core option.
