  • APM Terminals Tangier celebrates International Women's Day,

    In recognition of International Women's Day, the terminal has launched a new initiative to support women in difficulty. 

    Historically, the shipping industry has been a fairly masculine industry. However, women are becoming increasingly represented, thanks to the open culture of diversity and inclusion that APM Terminals seeks to strengthen. We are implementing a number of projects and initiatives that aim to celebrate individual differences by developing a work environment that’s inclusive, open to all, and at the same time broadening the pool of talent / skills.

    International Women's Day is an opportunity for APM Terminals Tangier to advocate for more equality, and also to take stock of the Group's achievements and efforts in this area. "Recognising this day has become something of a habit for us. It is a day when women in our company help reflect on the themes of diversity and parity in our environment and also at the global level, and how we can participate in progress. Unfortunately, we find obstacles to parity in almost all countries, but together, we can make things happen!", Says Ms. Leila Fadil, West-Med Director of Human Resources, APM Terminals Tangier.

    This year's theme is #pressforprogress, an unequivocal call to action, no matter how large, provided it brings positive change to the situation of women.

    To commemorate this day, and take a step in this campaign #PressforProgress, APM Terminals Tangier decided to help courageous women, who, despite limited means, decided to break through, to win and to embark on creating their own businesses, becoming independent, and helping other women afterwards, by creating jobs. 

    This action is the continuation of an initiative launched last year, aimed at funding training and integration into the job market for a dozen mothers in difficulty. To date, more than half of them have found a job.

    Continuous commitment since 2007

    Since it was established in the Ksar Sghir region, APM Terminals Tangier has played an important role for local communities. The terminal exercises its social responsibility by carrying out activities in a number of areas, including: socio-economic development, education and training, the environment, health and safety. 

    Last September, APM Terminals Tangier committed to reforest 22 Ha of a nearby forest, destroyed by a fire during the summer of 2017.

    In the fight against school dropout and to promote education in isolated areas, the operator also finances school transportation for students who live far from their schools in the riparian villages. More than 120 schoolchildren benefit from this action annually.

    In addition to this, the Clean Beaches project, initiated in 2015, aims to empower the Oued Alain beach, located close to the TangerMed port. The beach achieved Blue Flag status in 2016.

  • APM Terminals Tangier dedicates the month of September to the environment,

    APM Terminals Tangier participates for the 3rd year in a row, in the GoGreen initiative. The focus this year is climate change. Awareness campaigns and beach, forest and seabed cleaning, as well as leak prevention and CO2 emission reduction programs will be organized at the various APM Terminals terminals.

    The APM Terminals group is committed to developing efficient and environmentally friendly terminals. This involves the development and implementation of new standards, the selection of equipment with low environmental impact, awareness and capacity development, and continuous performance evaluation.

    In Morocco, APM Terminals Tangier's commitment to the preservation of the environment has materialised through various actions. In terms of recycling, the operator has set up partnerships with specialized companies to upgrade waste. These are either used inside the terminal, like end-of-life tires that are converted into pots for plants, or used oils and wood that are used to produce energy. Others are sorted and separated from other wastes, to be disposed of without harming the environment.

    On a similar note, APM Terminals Tangier managed to reduce the CO2 emission rate per container by 20% between 2009 and 2016, thanks to the implementation of several projects (white lights, Eco RTG, VTL, awareness raising actions). The operator is also striving to preserve green spaces around its buildings, an initiative that helps reduce CO2 emissions.

    The 2017 edition of GoGreen will focus on climate change and its impact not only on business and the economy, but also on our daily lives.

    This edition is an opportunity for APM Terminals Tangier to raise climate-change awareness among its employees, local communities and all partners and engage people using fun activities and a round table discussion about climate change led by Mr. Lotfi Chraibi, President of the Moroccan Association for a Sustainable Environment.

    Beyond in-house awareness activities, APM Terminals Tangier will, in partnership with Fahs Anjra Province and the Provincial Directorate of Waters and Forests, reforest 22 hectares of the Jbel Dalia Forest, which was ravaged by a forest fire in 2016, as well as the maintenance of 1600m of trees planted a few years ago and the creation of more green spaces.

    On its tenth anniversary last year, APM Terminals Tangier asked young artists from the National Institute of Fine Arts to create four works from recycled materials to raise awareness of the importance of giving waste a second life. These sculptures proudly adorn the entrance and gardens of the Terminal.

    APM Terminals Tangier is CSR certified by the CGEM and is ISO 14001 certified by Bureau Veritas for the management of the environment. The port operator is keen to participate in all major environmental events in order to share its experience in environmental protection and sustainable development. For example, the Terminal represented the Group in 2016 by participating in the MEDCOP climate and COP22.
