At Hubert Company, we conduct ourselves in a manner that respects our customers, vendors, employees and the environment. Our commitment to corporate responsibility addresses six key areas: Resources & Climate, Sourcing, Marketing, Logistics, Employees and Society. See what Hubert is doing in each of these areas including two of our most recent projects, sustainable shipping and our massive solar roof.

LOGISTICS

Sustainable Shipping

Our participation in carbon-neutral shipping programs supports reforestation and renewable energy. Co2 produced in the shipment of Hubert products is calculated and offset by projects that reduce or remove carbon in the atmosphere.

MARKETING

OUR PRINTER

Our catalog printer was the first printer to earn Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). They have also installed state-of-the-art air pollution controls at many of their printing plants. These pollution control systems minimize the impact on the environment.

SOURCING - APPLIANCES

ENERGY STAR PRODUCTS

Hubert proactively sources Energy Star foodservice equipment designed to use less energy, save money and help protect the environment. These items include commercial dishwashers, fryers, griddles, ice machines, ovens and refrigerators.

SOURCING - PACKAGING

A GREENER ASSORTMENT

Hubert honors its commitment to respect the environment by offering a wide assortment of eco-friendly, sustainable packaging products. Sustainable packaging maximizes the use of renewable, recycled or compostable materials.

RESOURCES & CLIMATE

In August of 2014, Hubert was awarded Silver Certification in Leadership in Energy & Environment Design (LEED) by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The LEED building certification program institutes a rating system that recognizes varying levels of environmental performance. Through LEED, existing building owners can identify and improve upon their design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. With the goal of becoming LEED certified, Hubert set out to become more operationally efficient in the areas below:

electrical energy produced by the solar panels is enough to power approximately 85 homes for an entire year and provides around 31% of Hubert’s electricity needs on an annual basis.

 

WATER EFFICIENCY

Hubert reduced indoor water consumption by 30% by upgrading fixtures and faucet attachments that control the water flow.

ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Hubert switched to biodegradable cleaning and pest control, and LED lighting. New HVAC units were installed to improve air quality and maintain 15% outdoor airflow.

MATERIALS & RESOURCES

80% of our waste is recycled. Hubert also uses 100% recyclable shipping cartons along with recycled paper for inner pack.

EMPLOYEES & SOCIETY

In 2010 and 2011 Hubert was ranked among the top places to work by Enquirer Media among mid-size companies in the tri-state area. Employees ranked Hubert tops for rewarding hard work with recognition, in addition to providing great compensation and benefits.

Volunteer Leadership Council

The Hubert Volunteer Leadership Council (VLC) is a group of eight employees who act as a catalyst within Hubert to promote and spread the spirit of both corporate and individual volunteerism among employees. The group has been together since May 2002.

Individual Volunteer Time

Service to our community is one method to actively portray our Core Values. In order to provide an avenue for employees to serve the community, the company provides Individual Volunteer Time (IVT). IVT is paid to employees who volunteer during company work hours with charitable organizations. Employees may choose any organization with a 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS.
