Aptar Surpasses Emissions Reduction Goals and Issues Updated Science-Based Targets in Line with 1.5°C Climate Ambition
AptarGroup, Inc. (NYSE: ATR), a global leader in drug delivery, consumer product dispensing and active material science solutions and services, announced today that it has updated its Scope 1 and 2 science-based targets, setting an emissions reduction goal consistent with requirements to limit global temperature rise to 1.5° Celsius by year 2030.
In 2020, Aptar formalized its original science-based targets (SBTs), setting a Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions reduction goal consistent with well below 2° Celsius (WB2°C); a renewable electricity target and a Scope 3 target in alignment to 2°C – all by 2030.
In 2021, Aptar significantly surpassed the original goals for emissions reduction to the WB2°C scenario and as a result, the Company has worked to update these goals to be more ambitious. Today, Aptar is proud to announce that its Scope 1 and 2 absolute emissions reduction targets align to the 1.5°C scenario and have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
“Driven by purpose, we continuously innovate to meet the world’s evolving sustainability needs in more efficient and effective ways,” said Beth Holland, Vice President, Global Sustainability. “We partner with our suppliers and customers to enable consumers to recycle more plastic, we introduce recycled materials in our products where possible, we frequently identify opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our operations and we source renewables where available.”
