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.

How the Humankind Value Methodology Drives the Rankings

We take a quantitative, data-driven approach to estimating the economic impact that companies have on investors, customers, employees, and society at large, rolling social responsibility into a single dollar value that we use to represent what a company is contributing to humanity. As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
