Aptar’s Beth Holland Receives NAEM’s “Leadership in Action” Award

Today the National Association for Environmental, Health, Safety and Sustainability (EHS&S) Management (NAEM) honored Beth Holland, Vice President, Operational Excellence – EHS & Sustainability for Aptar with a Leadership in Action Award.

Beth was one of eight corporate EHS&S leaders recognized at NAEM’s Excellence Awards ceremony which took place during the largest annual gathering for environment, health, and safety, and sustainability decision-makers—NAEM’s 28th annual EHS&S Management Forum.

Beth is being recognized by NAEM for her demonstrable impact that includes developing Aptar’s initial Sustainability Strategy, standardizing the company’s EHS Key Performance Indicators, and establishing a Global EHS management system, among other initiatives. Beth’s efforts have resulted in a 33% YOY reduction in Lost Time Incident Rate that has surpassed their industry average.

In a letter of recommendation that accompanied Beth’s nomination, Marc Prieur, President, Aptar Food + Beverage, described her impact on the organization’s key decision makers. “I rely on Beth as a partner and subject matter expert for our executives to keep pushing the envelope and stay ahead in EHS&S,” he said. “Her leadership in this area is a key asset and value to our strategic priorities and business imperatives.”

At the time of the ceremony, Beth was representing Aptar at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development council meeting in Portugal and was unable to attend the NAEM event. Accepting the award on Holland’s behalf were key members of her team: Joseph Frank, Director, Operational Excellence – EHS and Taylor Price, Manager, Operational Excellence – EHS & Sustainability.
