FMC Corp. has earned a spot in our top 100 in large part due to Crop Production ($99.1 B) and Economic Value ($2.2 B). It creates economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Downsides for this company are associated with Calorie Conversion (-$4.8 B) and Air Pollution (-$3.7 B). Crop Production, Economic Value, Calorie Conversion, and Air Pollution are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners. For this company, analysis without consideration of supply chain partners would yield a negative Humankind Value. Consideration of supply chain interactions pushes its Humankind Value higher.
