The award was presented as part of the CPhI Pharma Awards Gala, which took place Tuesday, October 24 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany.

Established in 2004, the CPhI Pharma Awards are one of the most prestigious recognitions in the Pharmaceutical industry today. This year’s awards included eight new categories to further reflect the industry’s diversity. The Sustainability Initiative of the Year is one of this year’s new categories. There were over 200 entries across the 19 award categories, and finalists for the awards were announced in August 2017.

Aptar was awarded the Excellence in Pharma: Sustainability Award for its Landfill Free Certification program, a global internal certification program which promotes the efficiencies and conservation of natural resources in a manufacturing setting. Facilities that achieve at least a 90 percent reuse and/or recycling threshold are eligible to receive internal Landfill Free Certification. With more than 40% of Aptar’s manufacturing sites already certified through this program, Aptar has achieved significant accomplishments in waste reduction, cost savings and employee engagement. The program is incorporated as a measurable aspect of Aptar‘s global sustainability strategy and Aptar anticipates more facilities will achieve certification in years to come.

Data from Aptar’s recent customer satisfaction surveys demonstrated the growing importance of sustainability to customers and supply partners. Therefore, Aptar’s internal program further reinforces that Aptar is prioritizing the needs of its customers in line with its own company mission and corporate social responsibility.

Yann Ghafourzadeh, VP, Sales & Operations Europe - Prescription Division, comments, “We are delighted to have been awarded the Sustainability Initiative of the Year at the CPhI Pharma Awards. It is great to be recognised for the progression of Aptar’s Landfill Free Certification program, which has been significant within our global sustainability strategy. We have aligned our program with our customers‘ requirements and we are dedicated to responding to what sustainability considerations are important to them. We look forward to further Aptar facilities obtaining the internal Landfill Free Certification in the future.”
