Aptar Updates Emissions Reduction Goals
AptarGroup, a drug delivery, consumer product dispensing and active material science solutions and services company, announced that it has updated its Scope 1 and 2 science-based targets.
The company announced 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).
Aptar commits to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 82% by 2030 from a 2019 base year, to reduce absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, upstream transportation and distribution, waste generated in operations, and downstream transportation and distribution 14% by 2030 from a 2019 base year and commits to increasing annual sourcing of renewable electricity from 57% in 2019 to 100% by 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.
“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 in a statement. “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.”
