From the CEO:
“We are pleased to share the significant ESG progress made by our global team in 2022. We are actively working towards a more sustainable future through responsible operations, reducing our carbon footprint and developing even more sustainable solutions for customers, consumers and patients. We are also convinced that our leadership in Sustainability, in addition to helping safeguard the environment, creates a critical competitive advantage,” said Stephan B. Tanda, President and CEO.
Aptar focuses on collaboration as one of the pillars of its sustainability strategy. The company works with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, among many others. Aptar is an active member of the CE100 Network and a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact. In partnership with these organizations, Aptar aims to include 10% recycled resin content and achieve 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable solutions in our personal care, beauty, home care and food and beverage solutions by the end of 2025. The 2022 Corporate Sustainability / ESG Report highlights these important partnerships and many others.
For 2022, Aptar once again achieved the prestigious Platinum level rating in recognition of its sustainability efforts from EcoVadis. The Platinum rating places Aptar among the top 1% of the nearly 85,000 companies rated by EcoVadis across all industries.
Aptar surpassed its original Scope 1 and Scope 2 science-based target (SBT) within the first year of validation by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Therefore, in 2022 we began working with SBTi to revise the Scope 1 and Scope 2 target to a more aggressive ambition, and to align it with requirements to keep global warming at 1.5° Celsius by 2030. We received official validation of this new ambition in March of 2023. Aptar also has validated science-based targets for increasing annual sourcing of renewable electricity as well as reducing Scope 3 emissions.
