Social Actions awards
APM Terminals Algeciras is keen to support its surrounding communities and encourages its employees to play a key role in this partnership. The company's Social Action Awards is a yearly event, in which APM Terminals Algeciras announces the ONG/projects it will be supporting during the year.
Selected projects are run by local or regional non-profit organizations and cover areas such as education, environment and health, and socio-economic development. Each project is supported by an employee, who takes ownership of the project, presents it to the community and provides a focal point. Involving employees in the social investment process helps maximize the societal and business value of these donations, and ensures they have a sustainable benefit and addresses community issues and needs.

For this occasion, students from surrounding schools are invited and given environmental talks, so they understand, not only the environmental challenges port industry is facing, but also all the initiatives that allow to reduce or eliminate our footprint in the environment.
