Caring for the environment
APM is committed to reducing its carbon footprint, while also inspiring people to take action at work and at home. By reducing our energy use, increasing recycling and working with partners and suppliers who also make CSR a priority, APM is setting a positive example for the profession to follow.
‘Car-free’ days promote more sustainable commuting and employees are actively encouraged to reduce, re-use and recycle at work, so that everyone is aware of the positive difference they can make as individuals.
APM and its employees support community projects through volunteering and fundraising. This is a chance to give something back, collaborate, engage and have fun together for a good cause at work, helping to build stronger teams.
APM supports several charities through in-house fundraising activities. Employees also proactively engage in private fundraising ventures, often with the support and contribution of their colleagues. To encourage and enable employees to support worthy causes, APM offers everyone an additional day’s leave each year to volunteer at a charity, either individually or with their team.
Supporting employee wellbeing
APM is passionate about the wellbeing of its staff, volunteers and all project professionals. It has long supported initiatives that promote good mental and physical health. As well as encouraging the charity and community involvement mentioned above, APM invites its employees to attend events about mental health and related topics such as mindfulness, resilience and healthy eating, creating a healthy and positive working environment where people can be at their best.
