CRYSTAL LAKE -- AptarGroup, Inc. has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest citizenship initiative, which focuses on universal principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

The Global Compact supports companies in two complementary goals: do business responsibly by aligning business strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption; and take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.

At the heart of the Global Compact is the conviction that business practices, which are rooted in universal principles, can help the global marketplace to be more socially and economically inclusive and therefore advance the collective goals of international cooperation, peace and development.
