Aptar Releases Corporate Sustainability Report

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AptarGroup, Inc. (NYSE: ATR), a global leader in dispensing, sealing and
active packaging solutions, today released its 2018
Corporate Sustainability Report
. The 2018 Sustainability Report
highlights the robust sustainability initiatives that have been
implemented across Aptar’s global operations.

As in previous reports, Aptar summarizes various milestones measured and
achieved in three key areas of people, planet and product. The 2018
Sustainability Report is based on the Global Sustainability Reporting
(GRI) Standards: Core Options, as released in October 2016. In preparing
the report, Aptar obtained limited external assurance for absolute
energy metrics, carbon emissions and renewable energy purchases. Aptar
also responds to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Investor Climate
Change, Supply Chain and Water questionnaires each year.

In 2018, the company publicly committed to Science-Based Targets and
published five sustainability aspirations: People, Circular Economy,
Solutions, Operations, and Suppliers & Partners. In addition to these
aspirations, Aptar partnered with its internal Innovation Excellence
function to create a dedicated Product Sustainability Team. This team is
focused on increased usage of post-consumer recycled resin (PCR),
additional opportunities for more sustainable resins and the
recyclability of our products. Aptar’s 2019 aspirations, safety programs
and community outreach initiatives are also featured in the report.

I am proud of the progress we have made to reduce our environmental
impact and further our position as a sustainability leader. The creation
of our Product Sustainability Team and focus on Innovation Excellence,
along with the partnerships we have formed with organizations such as
the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, World Business Council for Sustainable
Development and the International Solid Waste Association will
strengthen our capability to create high quality products while working
toward the circular economy goal of designing out waste,” explained
Stephan Tanda, President and CEO. “I look forward to sharing more of our
sustainability success stories in 2019.”
