ATLANTA (March 3, 2021) – Each year, J.M. Huber Corporation selects five winning sites for our Outstanding Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS&S) Performance Awards. This internally-judged program recognizes plants and facilities that demonstrated a strong commitment to achieving success through continuous learning and improvement throughout the previous year.
By applying best practices in reducing Huber’s environmental footprint, reducing safety risks, instilling a positive employee safety culture, giving back to local communities and embedding Triple Bottom Line (TBL) practices into running a successful plant, these EHS&S award-winning locations clearly exemplify what it means to achieve world-class performance.
