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.
