Aptar is committed to sustainable development

Keen to develop more sustainable packaging that meets the needs of its customers, it is now stepping up its activities in this area to help them achieve increasingly ambitious targets.

Limiting the impact of packaging on the planet

By 2025, 65 % of all packaging waste in the EU will have to be reusable or recyclable*. With this in mind, Aptar offers environmentally-friendly solutions by working on energy management issues (ISO 50001 standard), landfill-free certifications and product life-cycle assessment.
Particular attention is paid to the circular economy, which allows materials to be recycled rather than destroyed. And to support
As part of this ongoing commitment to responsible production, in 2012 Aptar set up a working group to develop and design ever more effective, eco-friendly packaging, using recyclable materials such as PP/PE for the Micro and Mezzo airless pump bottle ranges, and low energy consumption.

Innovating for greater eco-responsibility

Constantly on the lookout for suppliers and materials capable of replacing standard fossil resins, the Group has turned to post-consumer resins (PCR), post-industrial resins (PIR) and bio-plastics tested at its R&D centers. The former is a blend of recycled resins that would otherwise have become municipal waste. The second is a blend of recycled resins from industrial waste. The latter are derived from organic raw materials and carbohydrate-rich plants, such as corn, sugarcane or their waste products. Aptar has also recently launched the first dispensing system made from bio-based material, the GSA bio pump, as well as closures and other packaging made from PCR resin.

Mezzo Eco, the new airless in recycled and recyclable plastic 

To continue to innovate, digging the furrow of the circular economy and thus offering several life cycles to its containers, Aptar is today launching Mezzo Eco, an airless pump bottle designed for facial skincare and foundation products. 100% recyclable (pump included) and made from
25% of recycled resins, it contains no metal or silicone parts, and has been awarded the Ecocert label. This more efficient use of resources means lower costs and less waste, and a further step towards virtuous, eco-friendly packaging management.
