The Journey to JUST Social Justice Label: HMTX Industries

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has evolved from an overall relationship between companies and shareholders to the concept of Environmental Social Governance (ESG), which includes social justice. This more personal connection extends to employees, the communities where they operate, and ultimately, their customers, clients and consumers. Companies increasingly are obligated to identify their social purpose and craft policies to achieve it globally. How can they define and qualify what social justice means? The JUST label provides a matrix for policy goals, evaluation and measurement that is transforming how companies view and conduct their business. The process of achieving the JUST label challenges and empowers companies to embed it within business strategy, to use this global tool to gather data to judge itself and improve.

Join Representatives from HMTX Industries as they explore the company’s journey to becoming the only resilient flooring manufacturer to achieve JUST 2.0 and its relevance and significance to the Architect and Design community.
