ATLANTA, GEORGIA (April 29, 2022) – In celebration of Arbor Day 2022, Huber Helps has pledged $250,000 to the Arbor Day Foundation (ADF) to fund two reforestation projects. These projects will plant more than 220,000 trees in the Mississippi River Delta and West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest. Helping those ecosystems thrive for years to come aligns with J.M. Huber Corporation’s ongoing strategic climate objectives.
By inspiring people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees since 1972, ADF has grown to become one of the world’s largest nonprofit organizations dedicated to planting trees. They have planted and distributed nearly 500 million trees in more than 50 countries around the world to build healthier communities and protect our planet.
Huber’s pledge launches an annual Huber Helps sponsorship of ADF. The Company will continue to expand initiatives near Huber sites both in the US and internationally to help drive meaningful impact in some of the forests and communities that need it most around the world.
J.M. Huber’s strategic approach to philanthropy—Huber Helps—focuses on three pillars: Affordable Housing, Education and Wellness and Environmental causes. These efforts also support the Company’s Sustainability and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion goals.
In previous years, Huber’s environmental protection and cleanup efforts have been locally focused through each portfolio businesses’ philanthropy budget and local site community engagement initiatives. As the Huber Helps program continues to expand, having a global partner like ADF will help exponentially grow efforts with reforestation, carbon capture and watershed protection.
