With more than 40% of Aptar’s manufacturing sites already certified through this program, the company has achieved significant accomplishments in waste reduction, cost savings and employee engagement.
AptarGroup has been awarded the inaugural Excellence in Pharma: Sustainability Initiative of the Year at CPhI Worldwide 2017.
Aptar was awarded the Excellence in Pharma: Sustainability Award for its Landfill Free Certification program, a global internal certification program which promotes the efficiencies and conservation of natural resources in a manufacturing setting. Facilities that achieve at least a 90% reuse and/or recycling threshold are eligible to receive internal Landfill Free Certification. With more than 40% of Aptar’s manufacturing sites already certified through this program, Aptar has achieved significant accomplishments in waste reduction, cost savings and employee engagement. The program is incorporated as a measurable aspect of Aptar‘s global sustainability strategy and Aptar anticipates more facilities will achieve certification in years to come.
Data from Aptar’s recent customer satisfaction surveys demonstrated the growing importance of sustainability to customers and supply partners. Therefore, Aptar’s internal program further reinforces that Aptar is prioritising the needs of its customers in line with its own company mission and corporate social responsibility.
Yann Ghafourzadeh, VP, Sales & Operations Europe - Prescription Division, comments: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Sustainability Initiative of the Year at the CPhI Pharma Awards. It is great to be recognised for the progression of Aptar’s Landfill Free Certification program, which has been significant within our global sustainability strategy. We have aligned our program with our customers‘ requirements and we are dedicated to responding to what sustainability considerations are important to them. We look forward to further Aptar facilities obtaining the internal Landfill Free Certification in the future.”Read More
