FMC Corporation Political Contributions Policy

FMC Corporation’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct (Code) provides corporate governance, control, oversight, and procedural guidance for FMC corporate contributions to political candidates and causes. The Code is available on the company’s website and applies to all of the company’s employees, officers, and directors, as well as its agents when appropriate. Under the Code, approval of any FMC Corporation contribution rests with the FMC business or department requesting the contribution, FMC’s general counsel and FMC’s vice president of Government Affairs.

On a semi-annual basis, FMC will publish on this site all U.S. federal and state direct and indirect monetary contributions by FMC to candidates, as defined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 162(e)(1)(B), including corporate contributions to political committees, ballot measures and political parties.

Further, FMC will request trade associations and social welfare organizations established pursuant to 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(4) that received from FMC total payments of $50,000 or more in a given year to report the portion of FMC dues or payments used for expenditures or contributions that if made directly by FMC would not be deductible under Section 162 (e)(1)(B) or (C) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Company will disclose such information received from such trade associations and 501(c)(4) organizations annually on the FMC website.
