Pharmaceutical packaging provider earns landmark sustainability recognition

MM Packaging, secondary packaging specialist to the pharmaceutical sector, has secured Triple A certification from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

The firm said this means it is the only packaging business in Europe to have attained this recognition.

The CDP organisation certifies transparency and disclosure in sustainability. MM Packaging added that its commitment to environmental stewardship and operational excellence has been recognised through its ‘exemplary’ performance in these areas, earning the highest possible score from CDP.

Laura Lopez, marketing manager at MM Packaging Pharma & HC, said, “We are delighted that the MM Group has been recognised with CDP’s Triple A recognition, which is the highest attainable score in climate, forestry and water transparency. Of over 21,000 businesses scored by CDP through 2023, we are one of only 10 businesses around the world that scored A ratings in all three categories.

“This is particularly significant because as part of that group, we are the first and only pharmaceutical packaging specialist in Europe to have received this level of performance, which underlines our commitment to improving industry-wide sustainability in the pharmaceutical sector. We want to drive positive change in every way we can, and that begins with transparency and accountability. Our CDP Triple A score shows that we’re well on our way.”

MM Packaging focuses on developing secondary packaging that reduces overall reliance on plastic, while incorporating ‘next-generation’ security technologies that tackle industry challenges such as counterfeiting, serialisation and traceability.
