Corprate Bias Ratings

Risk Level:

Rating - Clear
Lower Risk

FMC vets vendors according to LGBTQ policies and does not provide its employees with protections against viewpoint discrimination, though the company has not publicly terminated business relationships based on views or beliefs. The company covers the cost of "medically necessary transition-related care" for its employees and their children and supports the Equality Act. However, it does not discriminate against religious organizations in its charitable giving and has not used its corporate dollars or PAC contributions for ideological purposes. For these reasons, FMC receives a Lower Risk rating.
