We understand that we have an effect on people, beyond our own employees. For this reason Aptar facilities partner with community organizations on philanthropic events.
We also manage our businesses with respect to nature and future life on earth. Each year, many Aptar facilities proudly celebrate Earth Week by hosting activities to promote environmental awareness including tree planting, local river and ground clean-up, sustainability contests and much more.
As another example of community support, over 230 employees at Aptar’s facility in Alphaville, Brazil teamed with a local charity, Casa da Criança Excepcional Maria Maia, to provide free care to children with severe cerebral palsy and related neurological and physical disabilities. In 2013, the Aptar Alphaville team held numerous fundraisers to provide care for nearly 200 people in need.
With the community in mind, employees from the Mukwonago, Wisconsin facility organized a team which focuses on planning and executing regular community service events. In addition to these events, Aptar Mukwonago supports the community through a relationship with GPS Education Partners, an organization which teams with local businesses to meet the needs of nontraditional high school learners. Educational programs provide students with an opportunity to earn their high school diploma through an integrated learning experience linking academic standards with real-world applications. Each year, Aptar Mukwonago hosts up to three students from Mukwonago High School, providing hands-on technical experience that allows the student to graduate with their peers. Upon graduation, some of the students have joined Aptar Mukwonago as full-time employees, and the company is proud to support them in both their education and career.
