In order to maintain a relationship of trust between APM Terminals Callao and local communities, and to promote citizen participation and vigilance, the Participatory Monitoring Committee was formed. These are voluntary, unpaid positions of responsibility for the local community.
The committee participates in quarterly monitoring of air quality, noise control, vibrations, observation of the impact on the life of birds within the marine ecosystem and the control of seawater and sediment. The results are delivered to the monitors, so that they can be distributed in their respective communities.
A social complaint and claims mailbox is available in APM Terminals Callao’s public area and on the website. The link is also available on APM Terminals Callao’s Facebook account to make people aware of the procedure and the channel.
Held every Friday of each month for national and foreign institutions and universities.
