FMC Expands Partnership with Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange)
FMC Global Procurement has partnered with Sedex, a not for profit risk management membership organization. Sedex will help us assess and audit our current strategic raw material suppliers in Corporate Social Responsibility (business integrity, labor, health & safety and environment). FMC has reached out to 19% of our chemical suppliers who are already members and asked them to “link” to FMC. One of the key benefits of a Sedex membership is that these suppliers will be able to share their current assessment/audit information with FMC. This will ease the burden on our suppliers facing multiple audits, questionnaires and certifications. The next step will be to ask the non-members to join and complete the self assessment questionnaire and possibly an audit.
FMC Corporation has been a Sedex member for 4 years.
FMC to Expand Avetta to North America
FMC has expanded Avetta, our 3rd party program to qualify significant Contractors, in North America. This qualification process emphasizes a safety analysis that helps FMC ensure that our regular contractors maintain the same safety standards as FMC-owned sites. The qualification also includes agreeing to comply with FMC’s Supplier Code of Conduct. Avetta uses “flag” colors (red,yellow, green) to identify compliance or not to meeting FMC’s requirements. A variance request process is followed for non-compliance. If necessary, corrective action plans are put in place or another contractor will be on boarded.
