Aptar has recently been recognized with Prime status by ISS ESG, one of the world’s leading rating agencies for sustainable investments. The ISS ESG Corporate Rating considers Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) practices by evaluating more than 100 industry specific indicators. Companies are categorized as Prime if their ESG performance exceeds the threshold criteria for companies in its sector. In comparison to non-Prime peers, these companies are considered better positioned to manage material ESG challenges and risks, and to seize opportunities.
“In addition to the numerous sustainability accolades we have received in recent weeks, reaching ‘ISS ESG Prime Status’ further underscores Aptar’s deep commitment to sustainability and strong track record to deliver solutions that benefit all of society’s stakeholders,” said Stephan B. Tanda, Aptar President and CEO. “At Aptar, we are proud of our ESG progress to date and look forward to continuing our never ending journey to live up to our purpose in the most responsible way.”
The Prime designation from ISS ESG represents a threshold metric, which enables Aptar shares to qualify for responsible investment within certain institutional portfolios having an ESG focus.
In recent weeks, Aptar was recognized for its leadership in corporate sustainability by the global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its prestigious ‘A List’ for tackling climate change. The Company was also named among the top 100 of “America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021” by Newsweek and one of the “Most Responsible Companies in France” by Le Point.
“We are pleased to be recognized this year by some very notable organizations and publications for our work to further a circular economy and are committed to being a sustainable and socially responsible company,” said Beth Holland, Vice President, Sustainability. “We look forward to continuing our progress and momentum in 2021 and beyond.”
