For the fifth consecutive year, Freeport-McMoRan has been named to the Civic 50 list of most community-minded companies in the U.S., and for the second consecutive year was named the top company in the materials sector.

The Civic 50 is conducted by the Points of Light Corporate Institute, a resource for companies looking to build and expand effective community engagement programs. The national survey and ranking initiative, developed through partnership with researchers and community as well as industry thought leaders, sets the standard for corporate civic engagement and recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The initiative reflects leading insight about how corporations can connect with communities in a 21st century economy.
Numerous community programs and efforts implemented by the company were evaluated as part of the process and overall ranking. As the No. 1 ranked company in its sector, Freeport-McMoRan was featured as a leader for programs focused on community and stakeholder engagement and its unique mining education initiative.
