J.M. Huber Corp. recently announced that it has been awarded the IMD-Pictet Sustainability in Family Business Award for 2020 by the International Institute for Management Development, a Swiss business school, and the Pictet Group, a global wealth management company. This accolade reportedly 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 this global award.
The independent jury highlighted the Huber family’s commitment to sustainability and the company’s clear demonstration of a will to transform itself. Huber’s efforts include the representation of sustainability on its board of directors as well as the Huber Principles, which underpin the company’s focus on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) of People, Planet & Profit when making critical business decisions.
“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,” said Mike Marberry, president and CEO. “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.”
