Aptar Group, a global leader in drug delivery, consumer product dispensing and active material science solutions and services, has once again achieved the Platinum level rating in recognition of its sustainability efforts from EcoVadis.
The Platinum rating places Aptar among the top 1% of the more than 90,000 companies rated by EcoVadis across all industries.
EcoVadis has grown to be a highly trusted provider of business sustainability ratings and its methodology is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000, covering 200+ spend categories and 170+ countries.
The Sustainability Scorecard illustrates performance across 21 indicators in four themes: environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
“We are extremely proud to once again achieve Platinum status from EcoVadis due to our continued progress in key sustainability areas of environmental stewardship, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement,” said Stephan B. Tanda, Aptar president and CEO. “This recognition reflects our shared values: to act ethically and responsibly, to foster a diverse team and capitalize on this strength, to care for each other and our planet, to source renewable energy, and to further a circular economy where packaging is reused and recycled.”
Beth Holland, vice president, Aptar Global Sustainability, commented: “We use the EcoVadis assessment to help inform our sustainability strategy and have taken actions to progress year over year. The hard work and dedication of many Aptar team members propels us forward on key sustainability topics. Our achievement of the Platinum EcoVadis score demonstrates our unwavering commitment to care for our planet and drive towards a more circular plastics economy.”
