The five winning sites of the Huber 2019 Outstanding Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS&S) Performance Awards—Broken Bow and Okmulgee, Oklahoma; Limeira, Brazil; Quincy, Illinois; and Wulian, China—recently came together virtually to celebrate their accomplishments.

The annual, internally-judged awards recognize plants and facilities that demonstrated a strong commitment to achieving success through continuous learning and improvement. By applying best practices in reducing Huber’s environmental footprint, reducing safety risks, instilling a positive employee safety culture 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.

In previous years, Huber leaders would travel to each site for an award ceremony. Travel restrictions due to COVID-19 made this impossible, so Huber coordinated a virtual celebration via Zoom on July 27, which included more than 50 participants.

In addition to representatives from each winning site, Huber Corporate Board Member Molly Heaney, Huber President & CEO Mike Marberry, Executive Vice President of EHS&S Don Young and leaders from each portfolio business attended and delivered remarks.
