HUBER could win this category as its company management vision places particular focus on sustainability. The company's strategic approaches are not focused on short-term profit maximisation but on healthy growth and job security.
CEO Georg Huber travelled to Frankfurt where he was presented with the award within the Global Business Week event. "Sustainable development does not only refer to economy but also to ecology and social aspects. It is always these three factors we must have in mind".
Georg Huber manages the company in the sixth generation already and continues to pursue the sustainability idea as the generations before him had done. It is finally one of the most important resources that plays the main role in the company's business: our water. The technologies HUBER offers provide modern, economical and efficient solutions for wastewater and sludge treatment. The goal is to save energy and resources and ideally recover them. Environmentally sound acting plays a major role already in the production process. For Georg Huber these goals are just natural and a matter of course. He is therefore all the more happy to receive such honours.
The prize is regularly awarded to owner-operated companies exclusively that are based in Germany. "It is no secret that middle-sized companies are the backbone of the Germany economy. Much less known are the enterprisers and their employees who contribute every day with their work. They deserve to be acknowledged with the "Hidden Champion" award and brought to the public attention", underlined n-tv CEO Hans Demmel.
