ATLANTA — J.M. Huber, a sixth-generation family-owned business, has earned the 2020 Sustainability in Family Business Award from The International Institute for Management Development (IMD), a Swiss business school, and the Pictet Group, a global wealth management company. The award acknowledges family-owned enterprises that stand out for their efforts, performance and progress in the area of sustainability. More than 60 international family businesses from four continents were considered for the global award.
An independent jury highlighted the Huber family’s commitment to sustainability and the company’s clear demonstration of a will to transform itself, including the representation of sustainability on the board of directors and the Huber Principles, which underpin its focus on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) of People, Planet & Profit when making critical business decisions.
The company reports that respecting the environment, treating employees well and being a good neighbor in the communities where Huber operates have all been part of its DNA since its founding in 1883. Huber’s TBL Sustainability Strategy is both a reflection and a strengthening of these goals.
“This important recognition signifies our substantial progress over the last decade in making Huber a more sustainable company by strengthening our culture, reducing our environmental footprint and enhancing the communities where we operate,” says Mike Marberry, President & CEO of J.M. Huber Corp. “Winning the IMD-Pictet Sustainability in Family Business Award will certainly inspire us to become even bolder in driving an ambitious long-term sustainability vision for Huber.”
