CRYSTAL LAKE -- AptarGroup has joined nearly 200 forward-thinking companies as the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.

WBCSD targets the realization of sustainable development goals through six work programs: Circular Economy, Cities and Mobility, Climate and Energy, Food, Land and Water, People and Redefining Value.

"Connecting with WBCSD's 200 members provides an invaluable opportunity to share best practices and work on larger projects with aligned objectives," said Aptar President and Chief Executive Officer Stephan Tanda.

In addition to leading in corporate sustainability, Aptar is committed to seeking opportunities to replace fossil-based resins, to increase its offering of sustainable dispensing solutions and to collaborate with its customers on refillable products. The company's Product Sustainability Team is addressing customer, consumer and regulatory expectations for sustainable product offerings. Aptar has already launched closures in North America and Europe made with post-consumer recycled resins and continues to explore additional opportunities for sustainable resins and fully recyclable products. Aptar's existing technologies, including multiuse, resealable dispensing closures, and spray and lotion pumps, are suited to address the evolving need to re-use and refill.
