AptarGroup, Inc. (NYSE: ATR), a leading global dispensing and sealing solutions provider, today released its 2016 Corporate Sustainability Report. The 2016 Report is based on the Global Sustainability Reporting (GRI) Standards: Core Options, as released in October 2016. It highlights the sustainability initiatives and activities that took place across Aptar’s global business. 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 and Supply Chain questionnaires each year.
In 2016, Aptar implemented a GRI-based scorecard which allows the Company to better measure and promote its sustainability performance in the areas most important to its employees, customers and shareholders. The GRI-based scorecard is championed by a cross-functional steering committee that works with each area of the business to monitor progress using key performance indicators.
Aptar has many passionate employees around the world who support and further the Company’s sustainability progress in the communities where they live and work. “I am extremely pleased with the progress our employees made in 2016 and the areas we have identified for improvement. We now have an increased ability to measure and analyze our performance so that we can strengthen our commitment to people, products and the planet,” said Stephan Tanda, President and CEO. “I look forward to continuing our sustainability journey and to sharing our stories along the way.”
