Remembrance on Peter Hundley

It is with great sorrow that we must inform everyone that on April 7th Peter Hundley passed away.


As many of Peter Hundley’s friends were aware, he had been diagnosed with cancer long ago. He initially responded well to treatment, which gave hope for a lasting recovery. Only very recently did complications arise that led to his unexpected death on the way to the hospital. His companion was with him.


Peter Hundley made major contributions to the development of the International Network for Environmental Management (INEM) since the early days of the organization. He supported the founding of corporate associations for environmentally oriented companies in several different countries, and by doing so helped expand the membership base of INEM. He actively engaged in the project work of INEM and, through his expertise, creativity and reliability, won over sponsors such as the Deutsche Bundesstiftung für Umwelt (German federal trust for the environment).


Peter Hundley always acted out of a profound ecological conviction. He would never accept “lazy compromises”. Ecological window dressing was something he saw through immediately. His veracity often compelled him to a demeanor that was seen as uncomfortable by some, but revered by his colleagues. He was the utter antithesis of the well-adjusted yes-man, as was already reflected by his appearance. As a conversation partner he was well respected by down-to-earth environmental activists as well as representatives of economics, politics and administration. Anyone who became Peter’s friend was his friend for life. In crucial situations he was able to find words of unprecedented sincerity and deep empathy.


Peter Hundley was born on September 8th 1953 in Ulm. He possessed and kept his American citizenship. It was a stroke of luck that, after many years of successful activity with INEM, he met Ildikó Kéri and the two of them lived happily together in Hungary for several years. During this time Peter continued to work for the benefit of INEM, but he also had more time to spend on his photography. One of his qualifications was an MA in photo journalism.


INEM will consider in what way the remembrance of Peter Hundley can be kept alive.


We are convinced that death does not retain the last word. Peter Hundley dedicated his entire life to the preservation of creation. Shouldn’t the Creator give everlasting support to those who stand up for His creation?
