Our commitment to sustainability not only reflects our core values as a company, but also our passion as a responsible, inclusive, global corporate citizen.
At Aptar, we think of how we drive sustainability across every area of our organization as more than “efforts.” In fact, we embrace them as opportunities to create a better world every day–both working on our own and in collaboration with our strategic partners, customers and others.
Every year since 2013, we have released a Corporate Sustainability Report based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core Options. These reports provide a summary of how we bring sustainability to life and highlight improvements and activities that took place across our global portfolio.
Every day at Aptar, our team is taking action by:
Building a more diverse and inclusive global team
And embracing the multifaceted work culture that results from it
Reducing the impacts of our existing products
While continually innovating to identify material opportunities for future products
Maximizing processes focusing on the conservation of natural resources
To better serve the communities in which we operate
Working toward a circular economy
To deliver on our vision of 100 percent of plastic packaging being both collected and recycled
Collaborating with suppliers and partners
To ensure alignment on our goals and the actions we undertake to meet–and even exceed–them
Our Sustainability Focus Areas
Corporate Social Responsibility
We believe that the lives of people should be enriched from having worked for and with Aptar. We give back to the communities where our people live and work, and our core values are summarized in two words–trust and respect. Our team members are trusted to take initiative, ask questions and be bold. We respect each other as individuals, we respect the planet we cherish, and we treat all stakeholders and partners fairly.
Circular Economy Contributions
We believe that the packaging industry must move beyond the make/use/dispose behaviors of yesterday and actively work toward, and advocate for, a circular economy. We are working to understand the current landscape within the packaging sector related to circular principles and look to use these principles during our innovation process. Collaboration is essential, and we work with partners, suppliers and customers who share our vision for a more circular economy.
Our operational eco-efficiency initiatives help reduce the negative impacts of our operations on the environment and in the communities in which we operate. We focus on minimizing waste disposed in landfills, increasingly procuring renewable energy sources, and reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions as we strive to reach net-zero.
Responsible Supply Chain
Our goal is to source from suppliers whose values align with our own – suppliers that are environmentally and socially conscious and responsible.
Memberships and Commitments
Aptar collaborates with those who share our aspirations to cultivate an inclusive and intentional system. Knowing that circularity, sustainable development and climate action cannot be achieved alone, working with suppliers and partners is critical to achieving not only Aptar’s internal targets, but also global societal goals. In addition to expanding partnerships with customers and suppliers, we look to establish additional partnerships in all regions to facilitate circular packaging systems.
