“Amec Foster Wheeler is committed to supporting the communities in which we operate and society in general, encouraging our employees to care about and involve themselves in the communities in which we work and live.”
We believe that encouraging and supporting community investment activities carried out by our employees is important. Working together for good causes promotes wellbeing, supports our local communities and helps us to demonstrate our values, particularly how we care about our communities.
The majority of the money Amec Foster Wheeler donates to charities each year is through matching the fundraising activities of our employees.
In addition to fundraising activities, we encourage involvement in the local communities in which we work, this may take the form of environmental clean-up activities like the global shoreline clean-up, supporting local schools or educational institutions, or spending time supporting those less fortunate than ourselves.
