Northeast Business Leader for Energy Efficiency

Aptar Stratford was honored as a

2015 Northeast Business

Leader for Energy Efficiency

by the Northeast Energy

Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP). NEEP Executive Director

Sue Coakley said Aptar Stratford “provides an excellent

example of how energy efficiency measures can improve

a company’s bottom line, contribute to economic growth

and reduce environmental impact.”

Luxe Pack in Green Award

At the annual Luxe Pack luxury packaging show in Monaco in

October, Aptar won the prestigious

Luxe Pack in Green Award

for its ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.

After a presentation of the company’s overall sustainability

vision and major initiatives a panel of judges selected Aptar

for the award. The diverse panel of judges, who ranged from

an editor of a cosmetics website to Monaco’s Minister of

State, was impressed by Aptar initiatives like our Landfill

Free certification program, product Life Cycle Assessments

and recent focus on Energy Management Systems.

We are proud of our employees’ vigorous

contributions that help us achieve

eco-efficient operations and we recognize

none of this would be necessary if we

didn’t have a product to offer consumers

in the first place. In the next section you

will learn about some of the innovative

advancements we have recently added

to our product portfolio.
