Since the Terminal opened in 2012, we have supported various community initiatives related to health, education and the environment. A selection of APM Terminals’ CSR activities that help vulnerable members of the local community are highlighted below.
Go Green 2021
In November 2021, as part of the annual global Go Green campaign, APM Terminals Lazaro Cardenas offered employees the option of planting and adopting a small tree to reduce the company’s carbon footprint. At the same time they raised awareness of a lifestyle that works in harmony with the environment, how to sustain natural resources for current and future generations and encouraged habits that can benefit our planet. More than 1,200 bean trees, laburnum, purple rose, lemons, myrtles, yacas, and guanábanas were adopted in Lázaro Cárdenas!
Community Donations - 2021
In February 2021, APM Terminal Lázaro Cárdenas made USD 26,000 of donations to support the local community. These included the donation of a special container to the Tenth Military Naval Zone to join the Marine Plan, which performs rescue tasks for the community in emergency situations. The Cecyte05 school, winners of the company’s Youth on the Move 2019 tournament, received computer equipment, and industrial face protection masks were supplied to all personnel at the General Hospital of Lázaro, who are working hard to support the community through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Community health kits - 2020
In September 2020, employees at APM Terminals Lázaro Cárdenas distributed health kits, under strict sanitary conditions, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community. Next to the distribution points, employees could scan a QR code to learn more about precautions they should take to avoid contracting the virus and the symptoms they should look out for.
Go Green 2018
GO GREEN 2108 took place in a local community park, colleagues from APM Terminals Lázaro Cárdenas and their families joined together to clean up the park, run Go Green workshops and to rehabilitate open and public spaces. Lazaro Cardenas was one of more than 60 APM Terminals facilities around the world running activities that will benefit the environment for future generations.

Youth and Movement
Part of our CSR commitment is to promote health and sports, such as the Youth in Motion Tournament. We’ve participated every year since 2016, together with companies like Arcelor Mittal, KCSM and Club Monarcas.
XMAS Train 2017
Another project that allows us to get closer to the community in the State of Mexico, is the Christmas Train. Each year, we work together with the likes of KCSM, Hasbro, Walmart, Universidad Panamericana, and Cinépolis to introduce more than 350 children to the vital infrastructure that supports Mexico’s supply chain: the railroad.
