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.
We have supported SOS Children's Villages as our global partner since 2007 and have pledged to support them until at least 2017, marking 10 years, by developing a formal partnership with three overarching aims;
SOS Children is the world’s largest orphan and abandoned children’s charity providing new family and homes for more than 70,000 children in 475 unique children’s villages in 123 countries. See our SOS fact sheet for information on our support over past years.
